The £1.3 billion transformation of the Granton Waterfront is set to go-ahead in a move that promises to provide an affordable homes bonanza for the Capital.

Key contracts for the first phase of the regeneration scheme are set to be approved tomorrow despite fears that the Covid crisis would derail major building projects across the country.

Some 3,500 home are already planned for the site - and now there are hopes that even more homes could be included in the development in order to tackle the city’s affordable housing crisis.

Edinburgh’s SNP/Labour administration has promised to build 20,000 affordable homes by 2027.

But depute council leader Cammy Day has already said that target realistically needs to be increased. And today he suggested the Granton waterfront development could play a key role in that.
