A £1 billion ‘Garden District’ has been proposed for Edinburgh.

The Development, which would feature hundreds of family homes, a new primary school and a network of roads would be located next to Edinburgh Park and the Bank of Scotland headquarters at Gogarburn.

The new ‘Garden District would feature a ”Cambridge-style growth area” with the ability to help the city’s economic growth.

The plans  drawn up by Sir David Murray’s development firm, Murray Estates, is part of a larger project that could see up to 6000 homes being built in the capital.

The plan also features a 60-acre National Garden with water features and research facilities.

Murray Estates aim to break ground on the site by 2017 if planning approval is granted.
