Meadowbank is a great venue for concerts and Edinburgh Council would be “silly” to get rid of one of the main places capable of hosting such events.
So says Sylvia Parma, of Newington in Edinburgh. She wrote to Edinburgh Council in July to give them yet another reason to keep the popular sports facility.
Over the years Meadowbank has hosted a number of very successful concerts including Prince, Radiohead and Kaiser Chiefs.
“The venue should be kept as it is. It is great for both sporting events and concerts, and Edinburgh does not have many such places,” wrote Sylvia.
“Most main concerts are held in Glasgow for that very reason. Therefore it would be quite silly to get rid of one of the main places Edinburgh has for staging concerts and other kinds of entertainment.
“I do not see the point of demolishing one of Edinburgh’s assets in order to provide space for housing. There is plenty of room for housing around Little France and Craigmillar is being redeveloped.
“Meadowbank is a main part of life in Edinburgh and because of this should not be demolished and sold off for housing.”
