In September 2022, GSS Developments purchased the former Continental Tyres Factory Site.
There have been a series of proposals for the site over the years, but following discussions with Edinburgh City Council, GSS has submitted a ‘Proposal of Application Notice’ to support advancing plans for a new commercial business park.
The proposal includes plans to create a light industrial development for trade counter and logistics including EV charging hub as well as improved local amenities, infrastructure, landscaping, and site access.
The expansive brownfield site has remained derelict since the factory closed in 1999 and now presents a unique opportunity to bring jobs and investment to Newbridge.
The well-known site sits within easy reach of Edinburgh Airport and is connected nationally via road networks with easy access to the M8, M9, M90 and the Edinburgh City Bypass from the location.
