Hundreds of new homes promised as Edinburgh Marina masterplan is approved
Posted 23 December 2015 by Keith Osborne
Homes for up to 4,000 people will be constructed in the Scottish capital as the City of Edinburgh Council planning committee has granted planning consent to the revised masterplan for Edinburgh Marina.
The project to regenerate Granton Harbour will create a 300-berth marina, retail and spa hotel facilities in addition to hundreds of new homes located just 2.5 miles from Edinburgh city centre. It is expected to create jobs for up to 800 people and draw in some £300m to the city in investment.
The revised masterplan improves provision for marine services, including a community boatyard and improved facilities for the Royal Forth and Forth Corinthian yacht clubs, as well as proposing an extension of Edinburgh’s tram service.
A spokesman for developers Granton Central Developments Limited says: “We are thrilled that consent has now been granted for the revised masterplan, due in part to the fantastic support of the local community who we would like to thank for their ongoing support.
“This is a wonderful Christmas present for the people of Granton, who have been forced to live for far too long with Granton Harbour in its current state. We’re very excited to start working towards bringing Granton Harbour to life.”
