Hackland Dore are pleased that our mixed-use development for J.Smart & Co (Contractors) Plc has been granted planning approval after receiving unanimous support at planning committee.

With its mix of commercial space, colony homes and flats, including 25% being provided for social rent, the scheme will deliver a vibrant new neighbourhood in the West of Edinburgh.

Great to receive recognition that the team and applicant have made a huge effort to accommodate an extensive new active travel route whilst also safeguarding the future provision of a new pedestrian bridge.
