Status of the Bid by MSDT for the Sick Kids site

Just an update for agenda item 7 (sick kids) (MSCC Meeting): 

Tonight I submitted two CRtB (Community Right to Buy)
applications for buildings and land within the RHSC, owing to the legal
complications/ technicalities that came to light during review of the
initial community right to buy application in March. So, we¹re hoping that
the Community Land Team will review these new documents (crtb forms plus
17 annexes) over the next few days, and once again press pause on the sale
of the site. If anyone can help expedite that process, we¹d be very
grateful. For now, I¹ll update Douglas as soon as we receive feedback from
the government.

On behalf of Marchmont and Sciennes Development Trust I¹d like to say that
we really appreciate all the help and support from you and your colleagues
at MSCC, in addition to the continued support from our excellent
Councillors, MPs and MSPs ‹ a huge effort to ensure that community
interests are represented during a very busy period for all. Really nice
to see us come together on issues that can be challenging and sometimes
divisive. Onwards!

All very best wishes and see you soon,
