Cowans Close Development

Cowans Close Aerial View

The street cleansing depot in Cowan's Close is shutting, and the site is to be redeveloped for housing.

The site is being considered for a new block of Council homes suitable for wheelchair users to address some of the acute shortage of adapted homes in the city.

The City of Edinburgh Council carried out a consultaton exercise to seek the views of local residents about this development.

As a result, full plans have been prepared and planning permission applied for. Full details can be found in the web page that has been developed for the site at
