Today was the closing date for offers for the Crags Sports Centre which closed at the end of last year. Having been handed back to the Council it has now been marketed and it is understood there has been some interest.
The Crags was the result of a community campaign a decade ago but it was unable to meet its costs and was bailed out by the Council in 2006 when it was handed to Edinburgh Leisure to run, subsidised by a grant from the Council. However, with a reduced subsidy from the Council, Edinburgh Leisure could no longer afford to run it at a loss and handed it back to the Council.
It remains to be seen whether there is interest in taking over the premises and in what form.
Here is a post on the background (with links to further posts).
