Over development?

As many local residents in Shandon will know, a proposed development near the Colony Buildings (off of Slateford Road) has generated a huge number of objections ... and yet, despite the volume of disapproval, the application was presented at Committee yesterday for approval?

Well, I'm pleased to say that Committee Members agreed to a site visit - which puts off the final decision for a few weeks and ensures the relevant Councillors will actually go an look at the site!

There did also seem to be a fair degree of sympathy, at the Committee discussion, with the main points of objection - so here's hoping that some common sense will prevail and this application will eventually be rejected as over development ...

... for me, that's exactly what it is.
