The 'Save Meadowbank' Campaign continues

29 April 2009

The campaign to save Meadowbank has not yet been completely successful but progress has been made.

The Council’s plan to sell it to a developer and to use the money to build a new facility at Sighthill is dead and buried.

I and many others formally objected to this proposal as set out in the new local plan for the City of Edinburgh. At the planning inquiry I argued that the whole Meadowbank site needed to be retained for sport for the benefit of future generations.
