Proposed Development

October 2004

Scottish Rugby Union, the owners of Murrayfield rugby stadium and currently have 20m debt.  They have announced that they propose to sell some of the land surrounding the stadium to be developed as luxury homes by builders, Miller.

This will entail demolishing the 65-year-old ice rink to the north of the rugby stadium, currently used for ice hockey, skating and curling.  It is expected that a new ice rink will be built either at Murrayfield or elsewhere in Edinburgh as part of the deal.
