Edinburgh Rugby: Work to start on building 'mini Murrayfield'
Workers are to begin building a "mini Murrayfield" next to Scotland's national stadium in Edinburgh following a planning delay.
Scottish Rugby's plans to build the 7,800-seater stadium were given the green light in October 2018 but a building warrant has now been granted.
Edinburgh hopes to play in its new home from the beginning of the 2020/21 season.
Until then, the club will continue to play at Murrayfield.
Douglas Struth, Edinburgh Rugby managing director, said it had been a "difficult process and more drawn-out than we had envisaged".
But he said the club was "delighted" to have been granted the building warrant.
"This now allows us to move forward with what is clearly a pivotal and game-changing project for the club," he added.
