In March 2018, the Council acquired the former gas works in Granton Waterfront which substantially increased its landholdings within this priority regeneration area.

This acquisition provides an opportunity for the Council to take the lead in the regeneration and ensure a place making approach is widely adopted across the area. This will create an inclusive and sustainable approach to development, and accelerate delivery of new homes, school, medical centre, retail, services, creative and business space, and enhanced public realm to provide a vibrant, well connected new city quarter. It has the potential to become one of the best places in Edinburgh to live, learn, work and visit over the next 10 - 15 years.

Why we are consulting

The views gathered from this consultation will build on the extensive work undertaken in previous studies, masterplans and frameworks to help shape the proposed vision for Granton Waterfront and will feed into the creation of a development framework. The development framework will set out strategies, principles and a vision which will guide future development in the area. The proposed development framework will go to the planning committe for approval as planning guidance. 

The Council wants to find out what you think would make Granton Waterfront a great place to live, work, learn and visit.
