Online consultation event arranged regarding proposed Leith apartments

CRUDEN Homes is to hold a digital consultation event on its proposals to deliver new apartments in Leith.

Located on the site of the Edinburgh Carpet and Flooring Warehouse on the corner of Salamander Street and Salamander Yards, the proposed development will aim to comprise 99 homes of varying size. The project will range from four to six storeys, with ground floor retail fronting onto Salamander Street.

A web-based community consultation event, in line with Scottish Government Covid-guidelines, will allow the community to provide feedback and help shape the proposals.

This online public consultation event, where the development team will be available via a live chat function to answer any questions, will take place on Thursday April 28 between 3.30pm and 7.30pm at

Rory Stephens from Cruden Homes said, “We are delighted to be bringing forward these exciting proposals for consultation with the local community. This ambitious scheme regenerates the current brownfield site, delivering much-needed sustainable housing, including affordable homes, as well as providing a retail offering on the ground floor.

“We’re keen to hear community views, allowing us to further shape and refine our proposals for the site, and would urge those able to do so to participate.”
