Edinburgh Academical stadium plan set for approval
July 24 2013
If granted it all but clears the way for construction of the 5,000 capacity stadium, which will incorporate its own function centre, museum and a two-storey parade of shops along Comely Bank Road, Stockbridge.
Campaign group Save Stockbridge, which has been at loggerheads with the club since plans first aired for the development back in 2012, pledged to pursue a judicial review if the green light is given.
Employing a stone façade with glazed pavilions and timber canopy the stadium has been criticised by opponents for drawing trade away from existing shops and for being of a scale which is out of keeping with the conservation area.
