Planning application submitted for high profile East Lothian development




Sculptor Andy Scott’s Giant Bear Sculpture at Dunbar Hallhill Development

A detailed planning application has been made for a major mixed used development in Dunbar.

The planned 54-acre low carbon development is designed around The DunBear sculpture which pays tribute to Dunbar-born naturalist John Muir.

Developer Hallhill Developments has submitted details of the planned roads, footpath and renewable energy arrangements for the site.

The development is intended to include office, industrial, retail leisure and community and residential uses and will adopt the latest low carbon technology.

The first phase will be for the installation of roads scheduled for the first quarter of 2021.

It will include segregated cycleways linked to the national and other cycle routes.

The planned development is aimed to be highly sustainable, using low carbon technology to generate renewable heat and power on site.

The developers said this approach would ensure minimal impact on the environment and assist in tackling climate change, as well as supporting the green recovery from COVID-19.

Ken Ross of Hallhill Developments said: “In the recent consultation we undertook, there was overwhelming support from the community for this being a low carbon development.

“Adopting the latest low carbon technology will not only provide clean green energy for our own development, but also on occasion feed a surplus back into the local grid.

“Construction and low carbon technology will have a key role to play in the economic recovery from COVID-19 and through the DunBear Park development we are fulfilling these two objectives.”
