'Major milestone' for Scottish international film studio
Pentlands Studio has been granted planning permission by the Scottish Government.
Scotland is set to get its first purpose-built international film and television studio complex.
Pentlands Studio passed a "major milestone" on Thursday after being granted planning permission by the Scottish Government.
The firm behind the project, PSL Land Ltd, is now working towards drawing up detailed designs with contractors.
Jim O'Donnell, PSL's director of development, said: "We are extremely pleased to have reached this major milestone in the studio complex's journey, after a considerable period of time and work to date.
"We particularly want to thank those who have supported the project throughout the past three years, and we look forward to reaching the next milestone as soon as possible."
The film and television studio will be built in Straiton, Midlothian.
A hotel, energy centre, film school and student accommodation will also be constructed as part of the proposals.
