Demolition to start in old Ark care home in Penicuik

From Monday 30th August 2021 we will commence site clearance works of the former two storey detached house and single storey residential facility/care home at 74 & 76 Windsor Square, Penicuik.

The buildings were home to a number of people supported by Ark who moved to their own Ark tenancies near the area few years ago.

The buildings, who have been empty since, will be demolished and the clearance of the site will take approximately 6 weeks.

Once this stage is complete, Ark Housing Association have planning permission to build new homes for social housing on the site while still retaining most of the existing green space. 

We are currently working through the necessary processes to get construction started on site but until such time we are making plans to ensure that the demolition site is made safe and is not an eyesore to the local residents. 

We anticipate minimal impact to neighbours and have sent a letter to all residents surrounding the site to advice of works and to thank them in advance for their cooperation.

The surrounding residents will be kept updated on our plans and advised in advance of any work being carried out on the site on Ark’s behalf.
