“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.”
