New employment development planned in Dalkeith
Buccleuch Property has brought forward proposals for the construction of an employment development with ancillary uses in Dalkeith.
Located on land at Sheriffhall South, Gilmerton Road/Melville Gate, the development will extend to over 10,000 square metres and will create approximately 300 jobs.
A Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) has been formally submitted to Midlothian Council, informing that it intends to submit a planning application for the development following a minimum 12-week community consultation period.
Full details about the proposals will be made available to the public at 9 am on June 22 on the dedicated project website: www.sheriffhallsouth.com.
An online consultation event will take place between 3pm and 7pm on Tuesday 22nd June. Interested parties can join the online event by visiting the project website during those hours at which time consultants will be available to answer any questions and receive feedback through a two-way chat system.
Feedback can also be submitted via the website following the online event, and information will be made available in paper format if requested.
Any representations or suggestions for changes to the proposals shared during the online event will be included in a Pre-Application Consultation report to accompany future applications. Please note, comments made to the prospective applicant do not constitute representations to the Planning Authority. A further opportunity to make representations to Midlothian Council will be available following formal submission of the planning application.
