No­dan­ger claddin­gon lo­cal schools

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A South La­nark­shire school that used a sim­i­lar type of cladding as Gren­fell Tower is not in Ruther­glen or Cam­bus­lang, the Re­former can re­veal.

Fig­ures re­leased last week showed that 44 schools across Scot­land used sim­i­lar ma­te­ri­als, with one in the South La­nark­shire Coun­cil area.

But of­fi­cers this week con­firmed the school in ques­tion is Glen­gowan Pri­mary School in Larkhall.

Danny Lowe, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of hous­ing and tech­ni­cal ser­vices re­sources, said: “While we con­tinue to have con­fi­dence that our build­ings meet strin­gent build­ing and fire safety reg­u­la­tions, these ac­tions demon­strate that the coun­cil un­der­stands that there is no room for com­pla­cency when it comes to fire safety.”
