This employment allocation was identified before construction of the A68 Dalkeith Northern Bypass, and the development of the employment land was required to await the improved accessibility of the A68, or suitable alternative measures. The bypass is now in place, and the employment site has good visibility/ accessibility. This site, and the employment allocation extension site (Ec2), should be masterplanned together, to ensure the layout, development sequence, and landscape measures are complementary. The consultation zone for a gas pipeline crosses the site and should be taken into account in the proposed layout, perhaps aligning roads and landscaping measures accordingly. Site access and layout should respect the site’s position adjacent to Dalkeith Estate, the Dalkeith Schools Community Campus and the individual and small group of houses in the vicinity. Initially, this site was identified for business (Class 4) and industry (Class5) uses. The MLDP has extended the potential uses to include storage and distribution (Class 6) in recognition of the site's accessibility to the major road network.
