Huge riverside development planned for Slateford

We have received a neighbour notification of plans to build two five story blocks of student accommodation on the site of The Blue Goose pub and Westfield Motors in Slateford. The site is opposite the Water of Leith Visitor Centre and at the entrance to The Dells - an area of outstanding natural beauty and ancient woodland along the river. Please take time to look at the plans on the Councils Website -

We will be drawing up an objection to this development in the coming weeks as we feel it is a massive over development of the site and will completely change the character of the area. I would appreciate you taking time to look at the plans and submitting comments if you feel strongly about the plans.

Here are some images of what is planned:
