Please read the following documents in the order below in order to get a comprehensive view of the current “state of play”
- CBCC Background Paper 1: AMA current planning application (PDF, 10 KB)
- City Council Paper: Report on AMA Planning Application (PDF, 251 KB). This is the officials’ report on AMA’s planning application 20/02916/FUL asking for another five years in which to develop the former playing fields at the Campus. The Council’s Development Management Committee (DMC) considered it on 12 May 2021.
- City Council Paper: DMC Decisions 12 May 2021 (PDF, 112 KB).
- CBCC Background Paper 2: Cramond Campus Planning History (PDF, 4 MB). This summarises key events in the planning history of the Campus from 1993 to today. It has not yet been discussed with the Council and AMA.
- CBCC Background Paper 3: Critique of AMA Proposals (PDF, 2 MB). CBCC and CA have serious misgivings over a number of aspects of AMA’s proposals and this paper gives details of them. It has not yet been discussed with the Council and AMA.
- CBCC Background Paper 4: Sports Pitches in Edinburgh (PDF, 4MB). This highlights how the number of high capacity artificial turf pitches in Edinburgh has increased significantly since AMA’s 2002 planning application, with the result that the total “carrying capacity” of football and hockey pitches in the city is much higher than ever before. This has significant implications for the pitches proposed by AMA in 2002. It has not yet been discussed with the Council and AMA.
- CBCC Background Paper 5: Suggested Approach to Discussions (PDF, 4MB). In this paper CBCC and the CA suggest two options for the future of the Campus in addition to the proposals for which AMA has had full planning permission since 2003 and the approach they are currently determined to pursue. It also proposes a set of criteria to be used to evaluate the options. It has not yet been discussed with the Council and AMA.

- CBCC/AMA: Draft Note of Meeting 15 July 2021 (PDF, 119 KB). This is only a draft because those at the meeting have not met since it and therefore its approval (or amendment) will be one of the early items on the agenda at the start of the mediation process.
