A HUGE planned transformation of Granton Harbour said to be worth £300 million to the economy has been given the go-ahead.
Edinburgh Marina will feature a 300-berth dock, 2000 homes and retail space creating 800 jobs.
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.”
