Online consultation planned to discuss Seafield development plans

THE public is being invited to have a say on proposals to deliver a residential-led development at 22-25 Seafield Road, Edinburgh.

Manse (Seafield) LLP will be holding a digital consultation to discuss its plans for the site. The wider Seafield area, of which this forms part, is allocated for residential development in City of Edinburgh Council’s Choices for City Plan 2030.

Manse (Seafield) LLP has submitted a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN), which signals the intent to submit a planning application following the consultation with the local authority.

The Scottish Government has suspended in-person public consultation events due to Covid-19. Full details about the proposals will be made available to the public at 9am on 28 January on the dedicated project website: (

An online consultation will take place between 3pm and 7pm. Consultants will be available to answer questions and receive feedback through a two-way chat system. Feedback can also be submitted via the website and information will be made available in paper format, if requested.

Any representations or suggestions for changes to the proposals shared during the online event will be included in a Pre-Application Consultation report to accompany future applications.

Manse added it will work with the City of Edinburgh Council, Craigentinny and Meadowbank Community Council, and other stakeholders, to ensure the delivery of this new community quarter in line with the aspirations of the emerging Local Development Plan.

Colin MacPherson from Manse LLP said, “We’re thrilled to be giving the public the chance to have a say on the future of Seafield. These proposals will greatly assist in the regeneration of this part of the city, and we are consulting extensively to ensure that that the public have an opportunity to input their views and help us shape our ambitious proposals.”
