“Why not a proper swimming centre/aqua park for kids? It’s shame that the capital city has none?”

John Blair added: “Gyle shopping centre has been run down for few years now...not the centre it once was.

“Very old fashioned. Better to nip out to Livingston.”

Vicki Colvin said: “Another cinema. Edinburgh needs decent concert venue - that would be nice.”

Liane Newton added: “Hopefully they get some shops that aren’t travel agents, phone shops or jewellers!”

Patrick Hogg said: “They needed to do something because it’s a dump!”

Michelle Barker said: “More money wasted why not put that to NHS or build new houses?”
