Buccleuch Property has unveiled plans to develop land at Salter’s Park in Dalkeith.

The planned redevelopment will include business, industrial and storage uses, Buccleuch Property noted, citing potential to “generate considerable employment opportunities”.

Buccleuch Property intends to submit a proposal of application notice to Midlothian Council, ahead of lodging a planning application for the development after a minimum 12-week consultation period. An online consultation will take place on Thursday July 15.

Buccleuch Property said: “We’re delighted to be giving the public the chance to have a say on our development proposals in Salter’s Park. This exciting development will deliver economic benefits to the community by providing new employment uses to the area.
