acciesThe redevelopment of Edinburgh Academicals’ Raeburn Place home has been given the green light following Wednesday’s decision to approve the club’s plans.

In a statement, the club said: ‘We are delighted to announce that planning permission for the development was formally granted on Wednesday 2 July 2014.

Although the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) confirmed that it was minded to grant planning permission for the development plans on 31 July 2013, this decision required that a legal agreement (known as a Section 75) was entered into with CEC. The S75 has now been signed and the Council issued planning permission on 2 July 2014.’

The next steps for Edinburgh Academicals are:

  • Finalise the leasing arrangements.
  • Consider preferred internal layouts for the new facilities, refining the design and layout of the internal spaces.
  • Prepare drawings and apply for the necessary building warrants.
