Seafield Regeneration Stage 2 Engagement

Closes 31 Jul 2024

Opened 18 Jun 2024


The City of Edinburgh Council has identified Seafield as a potential site for housing-led redevelopment. The council have included the site in City Plan 2030. The plan identifies the need for a masterplan to help unlock this potential. This is to ensure that there is a co-ordinated approach to creating a successful, sustainable new neighbourhood.

The council appointed 7N Architects to create this masterplan. 7N have been working with the council and representatives of the local community, including members of Seafield: Connected Coastal Communities.

Engagement with the community is taking place in three stages. 

  • Stage 1 - (April - June 2023) Community Engagement
  • Stage 2 - (June - July 2024) Community Engagement 
  • Stage 3 - Public Consultation on Draft Masterplan.

The stage 1 engagement sought the community’s views on what kind of place Seafield should be in the future. A summary of the findings from this engagement can be found here: Seafield Masterplan Stage 1 Report.

We are now presenting the ideas and proposals for the emerging masterplan for your comment. This will inform the masterplan which will then be presented to the City of Edinburgh Council Planning Committee before being formally consulted on. Please see for updates.

The risk of coastal flooding is increasing due to rising sea levels and coastal erosion caused by climate change. This is a key consideration in the redevelopment of Seafield. 

Since the initial community engagement in 2023, we have needed to take additional time to engage with a range of stakeholders. This is to ensure that places are developed along the coastline that are resilient in the face of climate change impacts. 

The City of Edinburgh Council are preparing a Coastal Change Adaptation Plan. We will update the draft masterplan in line with the recommendations from this plan.

Why your views matter

Your views will help to shape proposals for Seafield. They will ensure that the plan responds to the local community’s needs and aspirations.
