Wauchope Square, Craigmillar

Wauchope Square phase 1was the first housing project built as part of the wider Craigmillar Joint Venture Regeneration Project (PARC) which aims to regenerate one of the most deprived areas in Scotland through building new shops, schools and housing. A central idea of the project, which mixes private and social rented housing, was to provide traffic calmed ‘home zone’ streets with shared surfaces to slow traffic down and make walking and cycling more attractive.

By creating high-quality roads and well-landscaped green spaces people will be able to take control over the streets where they live and interact more as a community.
