Nicola Sturgeon has said her government is committed to "fit-for-purpose, state-of-the-art" eye care services for Edinburgh despite its refusal to fund the planned new eye hospital
We are a capital city and should be treated as such. Our eye care services need to stay in Edinburgh. About time they did their job – it all seems to be on vanity projects and they have made so many bad decisions. I think it's time for change.
She’ll maybe pop in and get her eyes tested. She might see what’s really going on around her instead of just making things up.
Unfortunately not under this regime. They have never fulfilled any 'promise' to date and they are not going to change now. It's all 'good soundbites' with no filling in it.
Well, good luck on that promise.
Quite right too, Edinburgh had the best eye care centre.
Nicola - 'we're committed, but we wasted so much money on the Sick Kids Hospital, so we're not going to give you any money for it. I suggest you eat some carrots'.
Is she as committed to it as she is committed to our education system?
Who needs eye care when we can have empty trams, a city centre no one can get to and some awesome Lego at the side of all our roads for bikes and stuff.
She needs the cash for her indieref 2 junk – shameful.
Get the Sick Kids right first before you comment on future disasters.
A service she desperately needs herself!
Aye, maybe FOR Edinburgh but probably not IN Edinburgh.
Pity she didn’t have the same vision for her government.
Aye, it’s been an eye opener – what they get up to is a disgrace.
Developers of a proposed Edinburgh ‘digital quarter’ are taking their long running planning battle to the Scottish government.
Yes, provided there is enough land for airport expansion. We need to find a way for both projects to co-exist. We need to get Edinburgh moving!
Not unless they also agree to pay to upgrade the road infrastructure.
Who wants 700,000 sq ft of office space these days? Has nobody told them working from home is where it’s really at these days.
Oh well, the final nail in our beautiful, architectural, historic city.
Not if it’s that horrific design.
Nah, they should build more student accommodations!
Another vanity project of no use to anyone, eh?
Is the "green belt" now being called the "green space"? I seem to recall that a green belt was an area where nothing was allowed to be built upon. This included the whole area in the article.
More traffic chaos around the west side of Edinburgh. Why not fill the empty spaces that are appearing at Edinburgh Park first before creating this?
700,000 Square feet of office space. Imagine all that built and sitting empty at the moment. Covid has changed the landscape, how can the developers possibly ensure that space won't just lay vacant?
Is there not plenty empty office space in and around Edinburgh? Do they really need any more?
Thousands more cars on the A8 corridor, brilliant idea!
Ah yes, a new, unneeded build which means more cars. Look out folks, here comes the congestion charge.
Any extra traffic in the west of Edinburgh would cause a nightmare in Corstorphine. It's horrific.
The Scottish government has a habit of overturning local decisions in this part of town.
