IF YOU WANT TO KEEP THIS:
SAY NO TO THIS:

This hotel proposal will wreck one of scotlands finest buildings

SAVE OLD ROYAL HIGH has been formed with the aim of protecting the Old Royal High School from inappropriate redevelopment that harms Edinburgh’s UNESCO World Heritage status.

We hope to influence those with the capacity to decide the building’s future to reject insensitive, damaging commercial plans for a hotel on the site and clear the way for proposals to reinstate it as a world class seat of education and cultural performance venue that everyone in Scotland can be proud of.

BE INSPIRED BY THIS:

ST MARY’S MUSIC SCHOOL, A NEW CONCERT HALL AND GARDENS OPEN TO PUBLIC

There are many ways you can help us stop this proposal

Having seen their plans rejected once by City of Edinburgh Council the hotel developers are back again with new designs that we believe are just as damaging. If this latest hotel scheme is rejected, the developer’s contract with the council can be ended and better alternatives pursued.

A clear alternative already exists. A bid to convert the building into a music school for Scotland’s children, supporting a new public concert hall and a new public garden, was unanimously granted planning consent last year. This plan has funding and could go ahead immediately, but only if the hotel scheme is rejected.

The only way the hotel will be stopped is if people across Edinburgh and throughout Scotland let decision makers know that they object to the plans and demand a better future for the school.

We have put together an easy and practical guide to objecting below, which includes all the relevant web links that you will need to get started.
