30 Inverleith Terrace - application for proposed extension and alterations
This application includes proposals for very significant additions to the side and to the rear of the existing house. The Society has objected on the following grounds.
6 Howard Place - Works to rear garden
The Society has been alerted to the fact that some significant works have been carried out in the rear garden of 6 Howard Place without any application for planning permission having been submitted or approved. The Society has contacted the planning enforcement team in the Edinburgh City Council Planning Department who have undertaken to investigate and provide a response within the next four weeks. Many householders may be unaware that, where a property is located within a conservation area, the legal position is that works of this nature require specific approval by the planning authority.
