Earlier the council received an application for a ten-bedroom hotel on nearby land.

The latest planning move follows Calderstones Land Ltd's bid to win approval for a 250-bedroom five-star hotel and holiday village in woodland by Midlothian snowsport centre. It would also have 14 apartments, 22 detached lodges and a country club.
