Festival Inns run both the Edinburgh Academy Cricket Club
clubhouse and the adjacent Raeburn House Hotel.
They sought approval, in 2002, for the present clubhouse to be
demolished and replaced by a new clubhouse and squash courts, and
for an extension to Raeburn House Hotel to be built to the rear of
Approval was refused in 2002, then granted in 2004. To
date, the hotel has closed and I see little evidence of any work
having begun on any extension.
