This application replaces one refused consent earlier this year and is for change of use of the present derelict site to 115 bedroom hotel with conversion of existing linked villas, partial demolition of the rear of existing link, and a new extension fronting Lady Road with landscaping and car and cycle parking, with space for 1 coach.  The previous refused application was for 119 bedrooms and the present application is  presumably intended to address the reasons for previous refusal.  Full details are available on line at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/planning following links to application search.   The Community Council is a consultee on this application, currently  with a closing date of 28 July for comments.
