With the help of planning consultants, the company has been consulting local residents on its draft plans for the 150-hectare site, which straddles the A1 at Craighall.
The vision for the land involves the urban expansion of Musselburgh, linking Queen Margaret University into the community and the creation of a major business park at the gateway to East Lothian.
