Our excellent partnership with Hub South East Scotland on this project, has meant we’ve been able to deliver this project to the local community on time and on budget.

I’ve no doubt this will be a valuable community resource in the East of Edinburgh – bringing many of the services provided by the Council and our partners under one roof.

Councillor Andrew Burns, Leader, City of Edinburgh Council.
