Ash Denham MSP welcomes decision to back Gilmerton Gateway proposals

Ash Denham MSP’s statement following today’s (Wednesday 6th November 2019) decision at Edinburgh City Council to back in principle the proposals for the Gilmerton Gateway:

“I welcome the decision by Edinburgh City Council’s Development Management Sub-Committee this afternoon to grant the Planning Permission in Principle 19/02122/PPP at 1 And 4 Gilmerton Station Road, Edinburgh, EH17 8RZ, also known as the Gilmerton Gateway.

“As the Member of the Scottish Parliament for this area, I have noted the significant number of constituents and groups backing these proposals – including over 700 members of the public who have responded to the #GilmertonGateway online campaign as well as support from Gilmerton & Inch Community Council and Gilmerton Citizens for Change.

“This development would allow the Gilmerton and wider community to benefit from a medical hub, community hall, space for new businesses to grow, and at long last a permanent and suitable building for the Drum Field Archers, a club which has trained and supported its members to achieve success on the national and international stages and deserves a new purpose-built home as is being proposed.

“Well done to all involved and I look forward to seeing the next stages of this development.”
