Residents of West Murrayfield Conservation Area and the broader Murrayfield community applauded the decision of the Rockshiel Trust to withdraw its second (2020) planning application for residential development on the ecologically sensitive heritage site at 9 Kinellan Road.

It is, of course, possible (some think likely) that a new proposal will be submitted at a later date, as happened following withdrawal of the original (2019) application.

In the meantime, Murrayfield Community Council is urging City Planners to order replacement planting for all the trees that were cut down on the site without authorisation. The entire property is now subject to a Tree Preservation Order.
