0 City tees up plan to transform golf courses into allotments

Golf courses in Edinburgh could be turned into allotments because of a fall in the number of people playing the game.
An audit by the city council has identified an over-provision of council-run golf courses in the Capital.

At the same time, the waiting list for allotment plots continues to grow, with latest figures showing more than 2,100 people are waiting for a site.

The council is now to investigate if some courses could be closed and replaced by allotments or used as other sporting facilities as part of a city-wide review of Edinburgh's "open space".
