Decision wait on Caltongate

Share this article

SCOTTISH Ministers have secured more time to reach a decision on the Caltongate scheme.

Councillors have already backed the controversial Old Town plans, but because the council has a financial interest – it owns the archways in Market Street – approval rests with ministers.

The Scottish Government will decide whether to give the go-ahead or order a public inquiry.

Ministers have already extended the 28-day period for a response on one occasion, and the latest deadline ran out yesterday.
