UPDATE – at Midlothian Councils planning meeting on 19th February 2019 the Planning Committee gave consent for this development against officer recommendations. Reasons put forward by councillors in favour of the development were:
- if we say no, we'll have to spend money fighting an appeal which we'll probably lose
- if we say no, we'll allow Midlothian's biggest listed building to go to rack and ruin.
UPDATE 13.04.18 - Representatives from the Oakridge Group and Geddes Consulting will be attending RDCC Meeting on 23rd April 2018 to bring the community up to date on the proposals, and to respond to any queries at this stage.
