A masterplan to turn the former Fountainbridge Brewery site into a new canalside quarter has been approved by planners.

The outline scheme would see the site transformed into a mixed-use area, including residential, retail, leisure, and student housing, with new routes created across the site.

The area around the canal would be designed to become one of the Capital's main attractions, according to architect Allan Murray.
