The Scottish Government Reporter accepted the quality, scale and density of the design, its impact on adjacent conservation areas and buildings, parking provision, lack of affordable housing, and effect on natural heritage. But flood risk and the overlooking of one property resulted in the developer's appeal being dismissed against the 2016 Edinburgh Local Development Plan. The planned development was for demolition of existing house, erection of new building to form residential apartments (20 apartments) with associated car parking and landscaping. The full report is in Useful Downloads below. Murrayfield Community Council had objected to the development.
