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.
