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 http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/cowansclose
