Public to be given a say on new employment development at Salter’s Park

Salters Park Dalkeith

Buccleuch Property hope to deliver an exciting new employment development on land east of Salters Road, Dalkeith, Midlothian known as Salter’s Park.

Including business, industrial and storage/industrial uses the development will redevelop the current site and generate considerable employment opportunities.

The developer intends to submit a Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) to Midlothian Council, informing that it plans to submit a planning application for the development following a minimum 12-week consultation period. 

The Scottish Government has suspended in-person public consultation events due to COVID-19. Full details about the proposals will be made available to the public at 9am on Thursday 15 July on the dedicated project website:

An online consultation will take place between 3pm and 7pm on Thursday 15th July. Consultants will be available during those hours to answer any questions and receive feedback through a two-way chat system.

Feedback can also be submitted via the website, and information will be made available in paper format if requested. 

Any representations or suggestions for changes to the proposals shared during the online event will be included in a Pre-Application Consultation report to accompany future applications. 

If you are unable to access the exhibition boards on the day of the event, please contact Orbit Communications on 0131 202 3259 or at
