Regeneration specialists Summix Capital have announced that the public will be given a chance to view its proposals for the Maybury Quarter sustainable and residential-led development in West Edinburgh.

The plans revolve around the regeneration of the former Saica packaging facility on Turnhouse Road, which covers 15.5-acre (6.3 hectares). The flagship low carbon neighbourhood aims to deliver a mix of uses, including housing, hotel, commercial and retail uses. This brownfield site is allocated in the Council’s Proposed City Plan 2030 for residential-focused redevelopment.

Summix Capital’s Maybury Quarter is set to deliver 1,000 homes, 120-150 hotel rooms, 30,000 sq ft of retail space and a potential local centre, and extensive green spaces with a high-quality public realm and access arrangements.

Addressing the city’s housing crisis, the housing proposed will include tenure blind affordable housing, with the provision of Build to Rent and accessible family homes. It is anticipated than an application for detailed planning permission to City of Edinburgh Council will be submitted towards the end of 2024.

“We are delighted to give the community the chance to view and feedback on our proposals for Maybury Quarter Edinburgh, which provides a unique opportunity to redevelop one of the last major pieces of brownfield land in the city into a brand-new, sustainable mixed-use community. The site’s regeneration has the potential to provide much-needed homes, employment and investment, helping to address the current housing emergency, and taking advantage of and strengthening already excellent public transport links by train, tram, bus and cycle. Maybury Quarter must be one of the most exciting and best-connected development sites in Scotland.”
