One area of great significance to CCG is the district of Craigmillar. Located west of the city centre, CCG began working in Craigmillar in 2015 with The Schoolhouse and the regeneration of the former Niddrie Mill Primary School.
With the creation of new homes came a renewed understanding of who the community was and how much the school was revered for generations. The upgrade of the school building set the tone for the work to come with 600 mixed-tenure homes created across various developments including the Scottish Home Award-winning Craigmillar 12-15, the final phase of the Craigmillar Town Centre Masterplan.
A more recent example is with the City of Edinburgh Council at two projects just down the road from Craigmillar: Bingham Avenue in Duddingston and Parkview.
The Council is one of CCG’s biggest clients; from the award-winning Craigmillar 12-15 to the pioneering, net zero Western Villages and Granton D1, we have worked collaboratively to create high-quality homes whilst investing in local communities.
Bingham Avenue and Parkview are no different. The 40-unit and 20-unit developments were respectively constructed in tandem during the most trying of circumstances during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst circumstances proved difficult, CCG maintained our focus on community benefit by adapting our policies.
CCG is proud of our work across the region of Edinburgh and we look forward to remaining there for many years to come.
William and Adele Halliday, plus their children, moved into a three-bedroom home in Craigmilalr Town Centre. William said:
“We have a 10-year-old, a one-year-old and another on the way so the move is perfect timing for us as a family. We had been living nearby in a flat on the 10th floor of a high rise – now we have our own home and the kids have a garden to play in. It’s very spacious and modern. We’re delighted with it and enjoying settling in. Getting to my work is easy too with the public transport connections here in Craigmillar.”
