Revised plans for Edinburgh Marina approved

Towards the close of 2015, Edinburgh Marina saw its redesign plans approved by The City of Edinburgh Council planning committee, making way for a new 300-berth marina just outside of the capital’s city centre.

Equipped with six berths for luxury yachts from 21.34m LOA, the new Edinburgh Marina will be the focal point of Granton Harbour’s regeneration. The development will deliver new homes for over 4,000 residents, as well as local employment opportunities for up to 800 people, while also making way for improved marine services, including a community boatyard and improved facilities for the Royal Forth and Forth Corinthian yacht clubs. 

Designed by Wilson Gunn Architects in Glasgow, the project will include a conference and spa hotel, providing 123 beds and 9,000 square metres of retail space. Improved transport facilities will also be implemented, including an extension of the city’s existing tram service.

Speaking back in December 2015, 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.”
