Social Bite homeless village given green light


As reported on the BBC and elsewhere in the media,  the Social Bite Village is another key step closer to opening (see here for background details to the project). Here's a good summing up from the Big Issue:
A Scottish “homeless village” has been given the go-ahead by councillors who approved its caravan licence. Social Bite, a social enterprise, had its proposals greenlit by City of Edinburgh Council’s licensing sub-committee this week, allowing up to 20 people to move to the Granton community in the north of the city. Plans for the 1.5-acre village were unveiled last year featuring energy efficient, eco-friendly, sustainable homes designed by architect Jonathan Avery of Tiny House Scotland.
