News as at 25 April 2018

In the autumn of 2017 Edinburgh Council asked a Registered Social Landlord (RSL) to assess the site for development (with retention of the farmhouse) for social or affordable housing. However, around March 2018, after due consideration, the RSL decided that the site was unsuitable for its purposes.

Residents had a meeting on 18 April with Council members from the Estates Dept and were told that CFH would now be sold as a house on the residential property market via an estate agent. Particulars will be drawn up soon.

The general consensus among residents is that the house should be retained, along with the 2 cedar and 3 lime trees (now protected by TPOs) with, if necessary, some appropriate and sensitive development approved as well.
