The Inverleith Society has received details of the Botanic Lights event from the Royal Botanic Garden:
Insertion of rooflights at 22 Warriston Drive
The Society submitted an objection to this application to draw attention to the anomalous inclusion of these streets within the Conservation Area. The proposal would disrupt the visual continuity of the street elevation which would be contrary to the policy for the Conservation Area.
The consultation period for the review of the Conservation Area Character Appraisal continues until 30 September.
This is potentially very significant for the area and we hope that all members will take time to consider the issues and respond to the consultation as suggested below.
Options for responding are as follows (you could of course do more than one of these):
You may want to refer to the Society’s proposed response to the Executive Committee which may be found on our website. However you choose to respond, you may want to indicate that you support the Society’s views on the changes which are needed to the document.
