Daylight & Sunlight on BTR Scheme in Edinburgh

Daylight & Sunlight BTR Edinburgh

Anstey Horne are delighted to have contributed to approval of this Build-to Rent (BTR) scheme at Bonnington Road Lane in Edinburgh.

We provided Daylight & Sunlight and Overshadowing advice to support the application for 453 BTR units, which includes 25% affordable housing, which was been approved by Edinburgh councillors last week.

The Bonnington Road Lane development is located on a large site which includes John Lewis’s former depot. The site is in Edinburgh’s Bonnington area, approximately 2 miles north of the city centre. The development is a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, duplexes, and studios. It will benefit from on-site concierge and maintenance staff. The proposals also include communal amenity spaces such as a residents’ lounge, roof terraces, a Bike Café and Workshop and gym.

The proposals by BTR specialist PLATFORM_ also include retail and employment space at ground level which will be available to residents, start-up companies, and other workers. Additionally, the development will create a public pocket park, a new pedestrian priority public street connecting Bonnington Road Lane and Anderson Place, and will replant 80 additional trees across the site.
