Hideous The new design standard for Edinburgh

The Caltongate plans were approved at the Planning Committee after being branded Hideous by local Councillor Joanna Mowett as she voted for approval.

The decision has sparked continued debate about the standards of planning in the World Heritage Site and the competance of Edinburghs planning service. Critics have complained that councillors were not provided with all the details.

The Caltongate scheme remains surrounded by controversy and scandal. 
Objectors are now considering further avenues available to them to challenge the decision.

The realities of actually developing the Cursed Caltongate plans proved the downfall of Mountgrange, forcing them into administration as banks and investors branded the scheme toxic.

Will the curse of the Caltongate plans result in the collapse of Artisan too?
