We supported the East Linton Auction Mart to look at options to develop the site and buildings (including the iconic former auction mart building) at the old sale ground as a community and small business hub. The Mart is now up and running as an independent enterprise.

The scheme developed when a small group of residents got together and started to discuss what could be done to develop the site.
Surveys carried out by East Lothian Council and Sustaining Dunbar had previously identified a need for local jobs, training opportunities, business premises, and studios, which could be catered for on the site as a whole.
They intention is that the site will once again be the focus of trading and community involvement encouraging local enterprise and business start-ups, as well as providing locally based training and education.
