Current Status

Plans formally approved

The City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) confirmed that it was minded to grant planning permission for the development plans on 31 July 2013. This decision however required that a legal agreement (known as a S75) was entered into with CEC. Due to various complexities, this process took a little longer than would usually be expected, but we are delighted to advise that the S75 has now been signed and the Council issued planning permission today, 2 July 2014.

Next steps:

  • Finalise the leasing arrangements.
  • Consider preferred internal layouts for the new facilities, refining the design and layout of the internal spaces with kitchen designers, catering firms, events specialists, high performance sports coaches and many sports clubs north and south of the border, to establish and incorporate best practice.
  • Prepare drawings and apply for the necessary building warrants, etc.
