Updated Edinburgh Academical redevelopment plans submitted
Michael Laird Architects have submitted a revised detailed planning application to redevelop Edinburgh Academicals’ Raeburn Place sports ground, Edinburgh.

The oldest rugby club in Scotland is planning to create a 2,500 seat stadium, clubhouse and museum in addition to a number of retail units fronting Comely Bank Road and Stockbridge.

Adopting a stone façade with glazed pavilions and timber canopy the new-look stadium is intended to promote Scottish Rugby.

Previous plans to redevelop the ground stalled owing to a lack of funding, leaving the club to operate from a series of temporary portacabins.

Balloons, we need more balloons! The proposed shop units on Comely Bank Road look rather dated and lacklutre. We need better quality 'background' buildings.
