Scope and Content

Plans relating to the demolition of housing in Edinburgh within the University of Edinburgh Comprehensive Development Area and nearby streets. The plans consist of a detailed Project Plan by the Corporation of the City of Edinburgh's City Engineers Department for the East Adam Street area. This is accompanied by a detailed 1:500 scale plan (35cm x 40cm) of the area, hand-coloured to cross reference demolition areas to the project plan. There are also 4 copy 1:1250 Ordnance Survey transparencies with areas for demolition overlaid in black. These use a complex set of symbols, but no legend is provided.
