A collection  of upmarket city streets has become the latest area of the Capital to be awarded conservation status, despite only having a "marginal" case, according to planners.

Plewlands, an area of Victorian and Edwardian properties in Morningside, won the sought-after status after pressure from local residents.

The area, which also includes Morningside cemetery, is bounded by existing conservation areas to the east and west, and stretches from Napier University's Craighouse Campus to Comiston Road.
