Liberton Hospital Community Engagement Event

Closed 20 Dec 2023

Opened 13 Dec 2023


Liberton Hospital site

On March 31st, 2023, The City of Edinburgh Council were successful in their bid to purchase Liberton Hospital and the neighbouring Blood Transfusion Site. This has created a unique opportunity to engage fully with the local community to create a Master Plan for the site. The development aims to provide integrated specialist accomodation which meets the needs of the Edinburgh Health & Social Care Partnership, as well as providing affordable homes and private homes for sale or rent.  

The Council will ensure that Placemaking remains at the centre of the development while upholding vision of low carbon transport, active travel, and sustainable development. This will be well-connected through the site and to the wider community, embracing the City Mobility Plan and City Plan 2030 and delivering a high-quality public realm.

The Liberton Hospital Development will retain as many of the existing trees as possible and incorporate them into the green routes through the site. This will allow for connections outside the site to Burdiehouse Burn Valley Park, St Katherine’s Park and Liberton Park, which will promote active travel.

The area has a significant level of public amenity due to the existing woodland and the original hospital gardens will create a fantastic opportunity for a range of high-quality spaces as part of the wider green network.

Why your views matter

The process of submitting a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) to the planning authority for the construction of housing has started. Due to the size of the development, a Pre-Application Consultation (PAC) must be carried out.

As the aim of the Liberton Hospital Development is to have a community-led masterplan, City of Edinburgh Council has obtained the services of Anderson Bell Christie Architects to facilitate this. We want to ensure that all views, comments, and ideas from local residents are captured.
