Welcome to the Consultation Web Page for the Beeslack Replacement High School and Veterinary Clinic (First Opinion Practice) and all associated development

Midlothian Council and the University of Edinburgh are delighted to consult on their proposals for a proposed high school, Severe and Complex Medical Needs stage accommodation and community facilities, swimming pool, veterinary clinic and associated works at Seafield Road, Bilston as shown with a red line boundary on the plan below.






We want to ensure that you are informed of the plans and welcome the opportunity to hear your views as preparations are made to submit a planning application. Two public events will be held and details of the first event are set out below. Arrangements for a second event will be made shortly, which we expect to be hosted in May 2024. At the second event we will outline how we have responded to comments received at the first event.


Arrangements for the first public event are as follows:


Venue: The public exhibition will be held at Beeslack Community High School, Edinburgh Road, Penicuik. Midlothian. EH26 0QF

Date and time: 18 April 2024 between 4pm and 8pm

Feedback: Midlothian Council and the University of Edinburgh and their professional advisors will be at the event to answer questions and receive any feedback. A feedback form will also be available for people to provide their comments which will be taken into consideration.

The exhibition presentation boards can be downloaded by clicking on the icon below.

The feedback form can be downloaded by clicking on the icon below.

Questions and feedback responses are welcomed and all feedback should be returned by 25 April 2024. 

If you have any further questions or are unable to access the exhibition presentation or feedback form, please contact us at, tel: 07841 487916, Holder Planning Ltd, 139 Comiston Road, Edinburgh EH10 5QN or use the contact details below. 

This public consultation forms part of the statutory pre-application consultation process and comments should not be made to the planning authority at this time. Any comments made in relation to the prospective application are not comments to the planning authority. If a planning application is submitted to Midlothian Council as planning authority, normal neighbour notification and publicity will be undertaken at that time and you will have the opportunity to make formal representations regarding the proposal.

The public exhibition and associated public engagement outlined above does not form part of the Beeslack Community High School relocation and catchment realignment consultation, which is subject to separate consultation procedures.
