23rd November 2016 - Commenting on the news that the vote on the Regional Performance Centre at Caird Park has been delayed,
Jenny Marra MSP said:
“I campaigned long and hard for a sports facility like this to be built in our City. Dundonians were overwhelming in their support of the centre and the opportunities it will offer their children. We know that better facilities will lead to more active, healthier and aspiring youngsters.
“Whilst the Scottish Government awarded the National Performance Centre to Edinburgh, we were promised a regional facility here in Dundee. Whilst I acknowledge the work that has been done on this so far, the Edinburgh centre has already opened its doors and I don’t think it is fair that we have to continue to wait for ours. I hope this project is not held up much longer as I think the earlier that it is open, the sooner our City will benefit from what it has to offer.”
