Historic Scotland enters ‘Uncharted Territory’!

Breaking news, just two days before our Friends Group deputation to the city chambers planning committee, we learned from Historic Scotland that they have almost completed their review of Granton Castle Walled Garden.Vinehouse and staff in garden

The great news is that they want to upgrade its status to B-listed!!

We hope this groundbreaking news will help convince the city council’s planning committee members to support our Friends Group aim of safeguarding this historic garden from a luxury housing development.

Deputation Letter to Planning Committee 14th May

The recent Historic Environment Act and planning guidelines issued for Historic Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Edinburgh, all recognise the significant contribution heritage landscapes & greenspaces make to our communities sense of place, cultural identity & understanding of history.

Friends Group members and supporters feel that one of the oldest walled gardens in Scotland deserves to be safeguarded, cherished and restored.
