This weekend Edinburgh celebrates Doors Open days with buildings of architectural and cultural importance being opened for free public access across the city.
One building proposed for inclusion was Canongate Venture but the doors remain furmly SHUT as City of Edinburgh Council officials deem it TOO DANGEROUS to enter!
Despite it being used over the summer for the Edinburgh Art Festival.
Could it be because there are only days left to object to the new Caltongate plans?
Should this building be altered to create a huge bar/cafe and confrence suite
Instead of being able to judge the value of this beautiful building from your own experiences of visiting it you will have to rely on the hundreds of documents produced for the planning applications
This building is over 100years Old and still solid and functional (although in need of a bit of TLC) and in great demand by local groups who wish to see it returned to the community for repair and reuse. The Canongate Venture playground is needed by the community for playspace and community gardens but the plans will see it developed over for another hotel!
THERE IS ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT TO OBJECT TO THE PLANNING APPLICATIONS
