Edinburgh Marina proposal Ok’d by planners
A bid by Granton Central Developments has received the all clear from Edinburgh City Council planners, clearing the way for the mixed use scheme.

Drawn up by Wilson Gunn Architects Edinburgh Marina will include a 300 berth marina at Granton Harbour in addition to 1,500 homes, a 123-bed hotel and 18,500sq/m of retail, leisure and business space.

A spokesman for the developers 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.”

The proposed masterplan also include a boat yard and yacht club.

Thank you Basho, since Tony Hart died and Neil Buchanan returned to his one true love - playing in his heavy metal band - the Edinburgh Marina has been my only creative outlet. If you could all hum the 'gallery' music from Hartbeat as you look at my drawing it would make me very happy :)
