Proposed redevelopment of the Mallard Hotel, Gullane

Following the public consultation held on 28 November on the proposed development of the Mallard Hotel in Gullane, the developers’ planning consultant has provided us with copies of the boards which were displayed at the exhibition and a file containing them is attached. We understand that a planning application is likely to be lodged within the next few weeks.  Bearing in mind our overriding purpose of ascertaining, co-ordinating and expressing to the Council the views of the community it is likely that we will consult more widely within the community at that stage.Click link below for detailed plans
