Edinburgh council opens consultation for £40m Meadowbank redevelopment

by Matthew Campelli | 11 Nov 2016

Residents of Scottish capital city Edinburgh are being asked to have their say on an ambitious rebuild of the existing Meadowbank Stadium and Sport Centre.

The City of Edinburgh Council will submit a planning application early next year for the redevelopment, which is expected to cost in the region of £40m (US$50.5m, €46.4m) and is being designed by Glasgow architects Holmes Miller.

Among the proposals for the complex are: an outdoor athletics track with 500 seat stand; two multi-sport games halls; three fitness studios; a gym; a gymnastics hall; two squash courts; a combat studio for martial arts; a boxing gym with ring; a 60m six-lane indoor athletics track; an outdoor throwing area; two 3G all weather football pitches; a cafe and meeting rooms.

The first multi-sport games hall will be the size of an eight-court badminton hall with permanent seating for 420.

Meadowbank was originally built when Edinburgh hosted the 1970 Commonwealth Games.

Funding for the new centre will be generated by the building of residential and commercial developments on parts of the existing Meadowbank site that will not be required for the new sport complex.

The project will include “affordable and low-cost housing” through the council’s 21st Century Homes programme.

Richard Lewis, culture, media and sport convener for the City of Edinburgh Council, said he “urges everyone to tell us what they think about the range of facilities being proposed”.

“Transforming Meadowbank into a brand new sports complex would provide a modern, fully accessible high-quality sports centre for sports clubs and the local community,” he added.

An online survey is available, and interested parties will be able to attend two public events at the centre on 17 and 22 November.
