The application site is located to the rear of St. Nicholas Court within Madeira, a sub-area of the Leith Conservation Area.

The sensitive 2-4 storey extension integrates well with the existing well established St. Nicholas Court accommodation and surrounding context. It provides 8 additional sheltered flats along with a new residents parking area and private communal amenity space.

External materials are specified to complement the existing sheltered housing, neighbouring buildings and conservation area.
