Edinburgh Marina planning permission granted

Edinburgh Marina

The City of Edinburgh Council planning committee has granted planning consent for Edinburgh Marina.

The development, which will include a 300-berth marina, over 2,000 residential units, over 8,000 square metres of retail space and a spa hotel, is being designed by Wilson Gunn Architects of Glasgow.

The approval of the development will provide a major boost of over £300 million to the city’s inward investment and will also feature new transport links to the area, including an extension of the tram service.

A spokesman for the developers, Granton Central Developments Limited, said, “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.”
