Drop in to find out how plans for Newtongrange are progressing


Local people are invited to a follow up drop-in event on Monday 27 November to find out how proposals for a masterplan for Newtongrange centre are progressing.

The masterplan is to bring economic benefits

In September, 125 people gave their views on how the centre could be developed to enhance it, bring economic benefits to the area and ensure communities thrive.

The event is at the mining museum

Come along between 1pm and 8:30pm to the mining museum in Newtongrange to see how the layouts have been developed and hear about the further research that has been done based on the feedback received.

The design is based on what local people told us

 Midlothian Council’s cabinet member for communities and economy, Cllr Russell Imrie said: “The design team has now come up with a masterplan design, based on that first consultation.

We want to hear what you think of the proposals

“It’s a great opportunity to let us know what you think of the design although please note that your views, while noted and important to us, won't be recorded as formal submissions.

“What happens next is that the council intends to lodge an application for planning permission in principle. Formal submissions will be invited at that stage.”
