A planning application for the redevelopment of Rosebery House on Haymarket Terrace has met with overwhelming opposition from residents.
The redevelopment plans involve demolishing the current building and replacing it with a much higher building. On the Edinburgh City Council website, the majority of comments submitted concerning the application objected to the proposals.
Council Candidate Andy Foxall said: "The job of our council should be to listen to all stakeholders, and nearby residents have to be the most important of these. I sincerely hope the City Council will take note of residents' thoughts in opposition to this proposal."
