Welcome to the Highfield Consultation Web Page
Taylor Wimpey and BL Chesser Ltd are delighted to consult on their draft proposals for the development of new homes on the site known as Highfield in the Gilmerton district of Edinburgh.
The site is outlined in red below.
We want to ensure that you are informed of the plans and welcome the opportunity to hear your views as we continue to develop our thoughts before submitting an application for Planning Permission in Principle. There is a link to the Exhibition Boards further down this page.
In normal circumstances we would have hosted a public exhibition in a local venue but the ban on public gatherings due to the Covid-19 pandemic means that this is not possible. Therefore, in accordance with the latest Scottish Government guidance, we are undertaking public engagement via this web page.
