TARTAN Leisure Ltd, developers of Scotland’s first artificial surf park, Wavegarden Scotland, has received unanimous support for its planning permission to build accommodation at the development.

The permission includes the HUB complex which will provide food, retail, changing and leisure facilities, together with overnight accommodation at the surfing and family destination.

The Wavegarden Scotland development, which is expected to open in 2022, is set to bring in revenue to the region of £11 million per annum and create around 130 new jobs. 

Last year, Tartan Leisure Ltd received planning permission from Edinburgh City Council to redevelop the disused Craigpark Quarry near Ratho into a world-class surfing destination and since then, enabling work has been carried out to prepare the site for the next stage of development.

Andy Hadden, Tartan Lesiure Ltd co-founder, said: “This is a major milestone in our journey to bring this world class surfing and leisure destination to the capital.

“Importantly, we are supporting local business along the way to help us deliver fantastic amenities, all set in this stunning country park.”
