Powderhall

  • With the Powderhall Waste Transfer Station stopping full operation in 2016, early discussions with Planning have led to the decision to prepare a Place Brief for the area, in full consultation with local residents and stakeholders. These extensive and longer consultation events are following the Scottish Government Place standard and are designed to form what is known as a Place brief which is non statutory guidance that should enable a broader and more informed final design of the redevelopment.
With the Powderhall Waste Transfer Station stopping full operation in 2016, early discussions with Planning have led to the decision to prepare a Place Brief for the area, in full consultation with local residents and stakeholders. These extensive and longer consultation events are following the Scottish Government Place standard and are designed to form what is known as a Place brief which is non statutory guidance that should enable a broader and more informed final design of the redevelopment.

The Place Brief is be based on Scottish Government Placemaking Policies and considers the following opportunities for the Powderhall site: Housing (provision of affordable and mixed tenure housing), Existing stable building (creation of a hub providing flexible workspaces and community space), Education (opportunity to create a new nursery school nearby the existing on primary school) and Open spaces (opportunity to enhance and improve open spaces).

In collaboration with Collective Architecture a number of consultation events have been facilitated to date to allow the public, local interest groups and stakeholders express their ideas about the area and its redevelopment.
