Edinburgh Council has approved a mega new development with thousands of homes, shops, leisure facilities, and a hotel on site.
The massive new Edinburgh Park development, adjacent To Lochside Way, and close to South Gyle, will be the biggest development to come to the city in decades.

Detailed planning permission for the commercial quarter of the proposal was awarded in 2018 and now the developers are moving onto the next stage.
