Land Development Project
Plans for Innovation Park and Commercial Zone on land around the University
We have exciting plans for use of the land around the campus, focusing on an innovation park and commercial zone. We are doing this because creation of such facilities will enable us to drive economic development to benefit the local Musselburgh community, and those in East Edinburgh, Lothian and Border regions. The development will also add to the vibrancy of the local area as it will include attractive spaces on land adjacent to the University facilities for local residents and the University community.
Our plan for an innovation park is the major project included within the Edinburgh City Region Deal to benefit East Lothian, and is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create significant employment and a vibrant and sustainable community that will serve generations to come.
On this site, you will find detailed information on proposals shared at public exhibitions in autumn 2016, along with information on developments since that time. There is also a dedicated Edinburgh Innovation Park microsite.
Edinburgh Innovation Park is supported by the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Regional Deal.
