-

A £ 42m superschoo­l t o re p l a c e C a r r i c k Academy got the green light after landing Scottish Government funding. The mega Maybole campus could boast a swimming pool and would be home to the high school, three primaries and a nusery. The plan is for Cairn and Gardenrose primaries to merge. St Cuthbert’s Primary will also have a new base on the site. A nursery is also among the proposals. And there is to be two all weather pitches for rugby and football. Councillor Brian Connolly said: “It is fantastic news and it is all guns blazing now to go ahead and start planning. “All the funding is in place. We will up the level of consultati­on. “It is one of the things the town has been crying out for over many years.” Constructi­on by Morgan Sindal could start next summer.

It’s estimated there would be about 1,370 children on the campus once it is built and operationa­l.
