Edinburgh East MP Gavin Strang has pledged to continue his support of the Save Meadowbank campaign.
“I am still 100% in support of retaining Meadowbank, and opposed to any development whatsoever on any of the land,” said Mr Strang.
Last month Edinburgh Council approved a report that indicates about two thirds of sporting facilities will be lost to make way for a housing development. Three community councils have already objected to the plan.
“We welcome this continued support from the local MP,” said Save Meadowbank spokesman Kevin Connor.
