Commonwealth Pool refurbishment

Following the move to put the redevelopment of Meadowbank on hold, partly because of falling land prices, a report to the meeting of Edinburgh Council this Thursday (20th) confirms the prioritisation of the redevelopment of the Royal Commonwealth Pool. The report anticipates the allocation of £4.75m, which would have gone to the Meadowbank sports facility, to meet the funding gap in the Commonwealth Pool project. It is expected the Pool, run on behalf of the Council by Edinburgh Leisure, will close for refurbishment in June 2009 making it available for use for training by teams attending the Olympics in London in 2012.
