Edinburgh Rugby (the professional club) have submitted a planning application for a 7,800 capacity stadium on Murrayfield’s back pitches.
The relationship between this development and the ejection of Murrayfield Wanderers (the non-professional club) from Murrayfield is unclear. Murrayfield Wanderers are controversially interested in relocating to Roseburn Park.

For those wondering about the new play park… a contractor has been appointed and they are expected to start in May and end in July (though last time was said something similar it was start in March and end in May)…
Work has begun carving a bench out of a log to be installed in Roseburn Park to mark the park’s new beginnings following the Flood Prevention Scheme. The bench is being organised by Friends of Roseburn Park and is sponsored by Murrayfield Community Council and the City Council’s West Neighbourhood Partnership. The work is being undertaken by Four Winds Edinburgh.
Thanks to all who made it to the drop-in bulb planting, which only lasted until 12 because of their industriousness. The only usable ground was among the trees outside the Northeast (Roseburn Place) entrance. Here are the last people standing:
We have been given 1000 Daffodil bulbs and these need to be planted quickly in the park. Can you help?
We have organised a ‘drop in’ event starting 10 a.m. through to 3.30 p.m. on Sunday 17th December at the Armoury building.
While some gardening tools are available, it would help if you could bring your own. Tools such as spade, trowel or dibber would be useful. Bring friends and family. All ages welcome including accompanied children.
