Closure of Redford Barracks

Colinton Community Council has yet to discuss the situation with regard to the potential impact closure of Redford Infantry and Cavalry Barracks in 2022 and the impact that this may have on our community. Needless to say, the loss of the garrison will temporarily leave a significant vacant space in the community. What replaces it, needs to be carefully considered.

It is likely that in time, City of Edinburgh Council will have to create a planning brief for the, site taking into consideration the listing of both the main buildings, the parade grounds as well as the subsidiary surrounding buildings which are in themselves unique in their own way and it will be difficult for any developer to make any changes of use for them.

We continue to keep a watching brief for developments.
