The Society’s objection noted that Canonmills retains a diversity of building types and forms including surviving examples of older vernacular and commercial buildings like No28 Canonmills. This gives it a distinctive character and sense of place which provides a counterpoint to the greater uniformity of the building forms in the adjoining areas.
Efforts are continuing to prevent the deeply unpopular development scheme at Canonmills Bridge from taking place.
The Society is continuing to work with the local campaign group Save 1-6 Canonmills Bridge. We have recently been in contact with all the local councillors in the three wards most directly affected by the proposals – Leith Walk; City Centre and Inverleith – to ask them to support action which would have the effect of nullifying the planning permission for the scheme.
