Shop plan to aid training

Plans by developer Cruden Homes for new shop units on the site of a dilapidated former care home in the heart of Currie will provide training and work opportunities for young people under a council-run scheme.

The proposal for Lanark Road West would see two new units constructed on the site, which has been empty for more than five years.

Cruden Homes has submitted a planning application to the city council, following a public consultation period.
