Public consultation into the proposed film studio development near Loanhead has been extended until the end of February.

Members of the public can view the planning boards which were on display at last month’s public meeting at ASDA Straiton at

In addition, comments forms for the Project Pentland film and television studios are now available on the website.

A spokesman for the developer said: “Due to the high level of public interest, Gordon MacCallum (planning director, Keppie) has extended the period of consultation until the end of the month.

“This is to ensure that any member of the public who would like to submit their comments has ample opportunity, as there’s no statutory period for this process.”

Last month the developer revealed that an estimated 750 jobs could be created if the complex was built on land at Old Pentland.

A spokesman for Pentland Film Studios said the overall budget for the entire site was now estimated at £135 million.
