Over the last ten years these has been a significant rise in the number of students in Edinburgh. And no wonder, it is an attractive and dynamic place to stay. Our universities do important work and many from within Britain, the European Union and overseas want to come and study at these.
However this development has been led by the universities and developers and local communities have often felt left out of a development that affects them. As a result the development of Purpose Built Student Accommodation is often where the concerns becomes manifest as the planning process allows local communities to comment on developer’s proposals.
Save Leith Walk has learned about this the hard way and has produced a short guide to look at what we have learned about student accommodation in particular and how it can help others express their views.
