An update and illustration is available on the proposed Rowanbank Gardens development at the site of the former Gylemuir Care Home. (8 May 2020) A presentation was made by the developer at the 19th May Corstorphine Community Council meeting, which included design revisions related to the feedback received at the February consultation event at the Corstorphine Hub. It is hoped that a further consultation event may happen in the summer but this is dependent on Covid restrictions.
