You may all be be aware from the recent Falkirk Council website article, the future of Grangemouth Sports Stadium may be under threat with the council facing a budget gap of £67m over the next four years. Grangemouth Sports Stadium is listed as one of the 133 Council-owned building that will be available for community asset transfer. Our understanding of the situation is that if Falkirk Council cannot transfer these 133 buildings to the community, then they will close.
There has been no consultation with scottishathletics on this process, and they absolutely share the concerns of the full athletics community on the national and local significance of Grangemouth Sports Stadium as a competition and club training venue.
Scottish Athletics have reached out directly to Falkirk Council and sportscotland to better understand the situation and the process. They will update us when Falkirk Council respond.
In the meantime, we would encourage you all to participate in the ‘Strategic Property Review’ survey (accessible in the link above) or link below.
