I asked about one,
here's the reply, it doesn't really seem to mean much, but it's friendly enough...
A colleague has passed on your e-mail asking about the status of St James' Church in Leith.
The building is category - B listed and is one of the 5 'priority buildings' in the Leith Townscape Heritage Initiative. CEC is currently working with partners and the owner to identify the preferred use of the building and establishing the cost of conversion/ extension for that use. It is unlikely any conversion work will take place within the next 2 years.
I hope this is sufficient information but if you require more info about the church itself then this can be obtained on the Scottish Civic Trust web-site (http://www.scottishcivictrust.org.uk
) clicking on 'Buildings at Risk Register' and scrolling for Buildings on the register in Edinburgh.
Feel free to call me on 0131 529 6236 if you require more specific information.
