City Looks to Splash Out

THE city council is to consider bidding for a small patch of land being sold by Scottish Water, which could be used as a public open space.

The area runs from Craiglockhart Road North up to the Allan Park canal bridge.

The convener of the city's transport, infrastructure and environment committee, Phil Wheeler, said:

"Council officials have visited the site and if purchase is recommended will report to the committee."
