Edinburgh Housing News – 2008

Edinburgh Housing Jump
Edinburgh City Council has announced plans for massive investment in housing across the city: 50% more homes every year, up from around 2000 to 3000. Affordable homes built will rise from 500 to 750 but apparently 12,000 are required in the next 10 years. Public sector land is to be released for new housing, including major sites owned by the local authority and the NHS. The council is to press for more money from the Scottish Government. 4 Nov 2007

Edinburgh News: 25% Affordable Homes
Much-discussed blanket 25% target across Edinburgh now out for six-week consultation: now for developments over and above just 12 homes. Apparently 12,000 affordable houses are required in the Edinburgh area. Developers are unhappy with the proposals’ lack of flexibility
Feb 06

Affordable Homes: £1/2 Billion
A ten year funding package of more than half a billion pounds to help deliver up to 10,000 new affordable homes, modernise existing council homes and regenerate deprived parts of Edinburgh has been announced. Edinburgh City Council announced the package following the decision made by the City of Edinburgh Council to apply to join the Scottish Executive’s new Community Ownership housing programme. The executive will contribute around £600m if the council goes ahead with the transfer of its 25,000 council homes to a new, not for profit registered social landlord.

Filling in the gaps
Demolition programmes mean the City of Edinburgh Council houses are disappearing, but new public sector homes are not being built fast enough to keep up with the growing population.

Edinburgh Housing: £5m extra funding
A Derelict site in the heart of the Old Town is set to be transformed into affordable housing. The site in Candlemaker Row is just one project to benefit as part of a £21m Scottish Executive package to create nearly 800 new homes in Edinburgh & Lothian.
Apr 2002

New Scottish Housing
Well done to East Lothian Council for getting out and investigating New Towns:
A new village with a hi-tech business park and 3,000 homes under construction, impressed East Lothian Councillors and officials when they went to see how an English council was meeting the demand for housing.
May 2002

Housing Exodus
More than 1100 private homes were completed in Edinburgh last year compared with just 424 housing association homes. The statistics also showed a fall in public housing being built in Edinburgh.
Jan 2002

Houses opposition
A proposed development of 400 houses on the banks of the River Tyne is to be opposed by members of Haddington and District Amenity Society (HADAS). The proposal involves houses on fields on the north-east border of Haddington, land highlighted as potential development land in East Lothian Council’s recent Draft Structure Plan. Haddington Golf Club are involved as an access road direct to Whittinghame Drive and the centre of Haddington(thus avoiding the busy A1) would run across the edge of their ground.

A new Clubhouse is reported to be part of the deal. Haddington’s Nungate Bridge is reputed to be the oldest in Scotland: the proposed new bridge should be of exceptional design. Edinburgh Contemporary Architecture will demand that a national Architecture Competition be held for this and encourage others to write to East Lothian Council with their views.

Edinburgh Housing Density
Mostly we build at only 70-80 households per hectare. So there’s nothing to be frightened of in high density – it all depends on the design, which is one reason why I have set up an urban design working group in Edinburgh Council, to see how we can improve our standards of design, especially in housing. It’s all part of going green – and, of course, a dense compact city is ideal for public transport. Trevor Davies is Labour councillor for Broughton.
