A marquee at Musselburgh Racecourse has been given a 10-year temporary planning approval despite concerns about its suitability within a conservation area.

East Lothian Council’s planning committee agreed to grant Musselburgh Joint Racing Committee permission to erect a ten metre by five metre marquee, with aluminium frame, on the south-western section of the racecourse in Linkfield Road.

Councillors also approved the replacement of a whin dust access road with a tarmac overlay.
