Pressure mounts on trust to ditch Lamb’s House flats plan

HERITAGE chiefs were under growing pressure today to drop plans to turn one of Leith’s most historic buildings into flats.

The National Trust for Scotland is currently negotiating the sale of 17th century Lamb’s House to city council-owned development company, EDI. Up to 12 apartments and new offices would be created in the landmark building, just off the Shore. A 1960s extension would also be knocked down and replaced with a modern block. for more click here
