Flats approved at former Musselburgh supermarket site

Mall AvenueA development of 140 flats on part of the site of the former Tesco store in Musselburgh has been approved by East Lothian Council’s Planning Committee.

Permission in principle for a mixed-use development on part of the former Brunton Wire Works was granted in September 2008 and out of that development, a new Tesco store has already been built as well as the Musselburgh Primary Care Facility.

The permission granted this week is for the detailed development of 140 flats on the site of the former Tesco store at Mall Avenue. The development includes a mix of one, two and three bedroomed flats of which 129 will be for private sale and 11 are affordable housing.

Some committee members raised concerns about the provision of only 146 parking spaces for the 140 flats but the vote in the end was eight councillors in favour of the development and one against.
