Planning consent for new Edinburgh Marina
Edinburgh Marina is set to become the centrepiece of a £500m waterside quarter development close to Edinburgh city centre after receiving detailed planning consent.
The Edinburgh Marina development, from Edinburgh Marina Holdings, will include a range of leisure and accommodation facilities, situated adjacent to Edinburgh’s first purpose-built luxury marina.
The marina forms part of the masterplan consent for the wider Edinburgh Marina Development that was granted for the 28 hectare site in 2017. The developers say the new marina will enable Scotland’s capital to compete with the more established west coast sailing destinations for part of Scotland’s £3.7bn marine tourism industry; creating new facilities to help expand the size of Scotland’s overall market.
Located 2.5miles north west of central Edinburgh and designed to surpass the 5 Gold Anchors rating of the Yacht Harbour Association, Edinburgh Marina will offer 317 full-serviced berths, with visitor berths and additional dry berths for boats up to 30m in length. It will offer 24/7 access to the sea, on-demand, on-board food and drink along with concierge service. The marina has been designed to accommodate the full-size range of yachts and cruisers, including some of the largest of the world’s super yachts – the first time this has been possible on Scotland’s east coast.
Detailed planning consent for the remaining elements of this new quarter of Edinburgh are anticipated early this year with construction of the marina buildings and associated developments scheduled to begin in the second half of 2018.
