Friends of Midmar Paddock
Protecting Midmar Paddock as open access, unbuilt on greenspace
We are local volunteers acting as trustees for a group which enjoys wide community support.
Our aim is to protect Midmar Paddock, the open field located on Midmar Drive, in the Morningside and Braids district of Edinburgh.
We want it to remain as open access, unbuilt on, greenspace for the benefit of the community, whether local or from across Edinburgh.
Plans are currently being drawn up for an extensive development at Midmar Paddock, which could include houses and a private care home.
An application for planning permission has not yet been made, as far as we are aware, but given the potential scale of the development, it is likely to trigger a requirement to consult with the local community. We will post updates on our website when we know more.
