People-led local development

Residents at the heart

By re-imagining Granton Waterfront, we’ve designed a sustainable and flexible future vision for redevelopment, embedding the Scottish Government’s four pillars of economic recovery. TheseVisualisation of Granton Waterfront development pillars include:

  • environment (natural capital)
  • people (human capital)
  • community (social capital)
  • business (financial and physical capital).

Existing and new residents are at the heart of the plan. They are our priority for the benefits the development will bring.

We are committed to delivering culture and learning strategies. These will create a learning community and a place where local culture and the creative sector is visible and thriving.

Our aim is to create a new model for resilient, environmentally conscious communities that promote belonging, opportunity and happiness. We want it to attract

  • visitors
  • tourists
  • investors
  • researchers 
  • students

from the UK and across the world.
