Lar Housing Trust


Ann Leslie, CEO of Lar Housing Trust, shared her vision to transform the former naval barracks at Port Edgar at our talk on 22nd November 2023.

Key points:
– “minded to grant” planning permission has now been received
– Lar is committed to community access and has included provision for a cafe / restaurant, beach access and a meeting facility in the plans
– There are also options to re-route the John Muir Way through the site
– Lar is hosting Edinburgh University’s “Seawarm”renewable energy project on-site and a small scale prototype is already providing heat to one building
– Lar has appointed a Community Engagement Officer for the site and is keen to get local input for a heritage display and for site landscaping design
