Supermarket dream for site

Have your say

COUNCIL bosses want to sell land in the west of Edinburgh to pave the way for construction of a new supermarket and flats.

The council hopes to net £140,000 from sale of land at West Gorgie Place to developer West Register Realisation Ltd.

The developer – a subsidiary of Royal Bank of Scotland – has planning consent, subject to conditions on parking availability, for a mixed supermarket and housing development.

The development would be built on the sites of the former Fruit Market and Co-op.
