Up to 1,000 houses, along with business and community facilities, could be accommodated on land earmarked for the expansion of Musselburgh.

Proposals for a “major strategic development opportunity” on the southern edge of the town were outlined by representatives of Persimmon Homes during a meeting with community councillors this week.

What do you think of the Musselburgh expansion plans?

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.
