A second Community Council has called on Edinburgh Council to reconsider its plan to demolish Meadowbank Stadium and replace it with a scaled down sports centre.
Northfield/Willowbrae Community Council met last week and decided to support the on-going Save Meadowbank campaign.
Stewart Kerr, Community Council secretary, said: “Councillors of all parties must put the needs of the citizens of Edinburgh first before pandering to property developers. The Northfield/Willowbrae Community Council fully supports the campaign to Save Meadowbank.”
Craigentinny/Meadowbank Community Council has already called on the plan to be reviewed. Save Meadowbank spokesman Kevin Connor welcomed this latest backing. He said: “Edinburgh Council needs to reconsider its current plan for Meadowbank because last month it approved a report that indicates about two thirds of sporting facilities will be lost to make way for a housing development.”
