Future Developments

Prospect is working on two developments for much needed affordable housing


Prospect have partnered with Edinburgh based developer J Smart & Co to deliver 69 affordable homes in the South West of Edinburgh.

Planning permission has been submitted to develop surplus disused land, currently part of Kingsknowe Golf Club.  

The homes will be designed to achieve the Scottish Government Greener Standard of Sustainability and will be funded through a mixture of private finance and Scottish Government grant funding via the City of Edinburgh Council.

The proposed development will be a mixture of mid-market properties, targeted at households on low to moderate incomes, and social rented properties.  It is hoped that work will begin on site by Spring 2020.


Prospect are at the early stages of developing plans to build much needed affordable housing on the old  Woods Centre site by the canal in Morvenside, following a decision by Edinburgh Council to sell the site to Prospect. The building had been used as a mail sorting facility for several years and has recently been demolished. Prospect own much of the land surrounding the site and will soon be appointing architects to carry out some initial design work.

Prospect will organise a local consultation event once the early design work has been completed.
