Last month saw the revised masterplan for the all-new Edinburgh Marina in the enchanting Scotland get the green light from The City of Edinburgh Council planning committee. The 300-berth marina is expected to feature up to 6 berths devoted to luxury yachts measuring 70 feet and above.
To be the focal point of Granton Harbour’s regeneration, located just 2,5 miles from Edinburgh City Centre, the Edinburgh Marina development will deliver new homes for over 4,000 residents as well as local employment opportunities for up to 800 people, whilst the new masterplan provides for improved marine services, including a community boatyard and improved facilities for the Royal Forth and Forth Corinthian yacht clubs.
A spokesman for the developers, Granton Central Developments Limited, said back in December 2015: “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.”
