Reimagining Murrayburn, Hailesland and Dumbryden - People and Places

Closed 12 Dec 2021

Opened 17 Nov 2021


The City of Edinburgh Council, working in collaboration with the design consultancy Atkins, are embarking on a public realm and greenspace improvement project across the Murrayburn, Hailesland and Dumbryden estates to support the regeneration of these neighbourhoods. The project endeavours to work with the local community to deliver a range of physical place-making improvements throughout the estates with a particular focus on community greenspace, public areas, car parking, active travel, play space and lighting. 

The Council have appointed Atkins to develop concept design proposals for the estates that take into account aspirations arising from previous and ongoing work within the Wester Hailes area such as the community-led Wester Hailes Local Place Plan, the South West Locality Improvement Plan and the annual Neighbourhood Improvement Projects. This project is being delivered in parallel with the wider Wester Hailes Regeneration & Development Framework, as an early action project.

Why your views matter

Community engagement is fundamental to the success of the project. Feedback received will inform the designs to ensure the proposals reflect the needs and aspirations of the local community.

A big thank you to everyone who attended the MHD People and Places community consultation day on Saturday (20th November 2021). The day was a hit, we had so much fun and we hope everyone who came did too! We met lots of interesting people who all had great ideas. We look forward to translating these ideas into the designs for your public spaces.
