Plans approved for new sports and outdoor centre in Edinburgh, UK


The City of Edinburgh Council’s development management sub-committee has approved plans for the Bangholm Sports and Outdoor Centre in north Edinburgh, UK.

Located adjacent to Trinity Academy, the building will create a new campus with the sports pavilion that is the first phase in a proposed redevelopment of the school’s facilities.

The new building will be the new home of the school’s PE department. It will have a four-court sports hall, gym hall, dance studio and fitness suite.

Education Convener Councillor Ian Perry said: “It’s great news that these plans have been approved today as the school and wider local community are really going to benefit from these purpose-built sport and outdoor centre buildings.

“The new sports venue will boast a four-court hall, gym hall, dance studio and fitness suite and although it will primarily be used by Trinity Academy for school PE, wider community groups will also have access to the facilities.”

To support outdoor learning in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas, the Council’s Sport and Outdoor Learning Unit will also have a base in the centre.

Planning Convener Councillor Neil Gardiner said: “This is going to be an excellent new facility for Trinity Academy pupils and the wider community.

“I look forward to seeing the plans presented to us today being taken forward and built for school children and other community groups to enjoy. Providing high-quality facilities for health and well-being is a vital part of planning in 21st century Edinburgh.”
