Evening Times - - NEWS -

THE green light has been given for a new ad­di­tional needs school in Kirk­in­til­loch.

Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment Min­is­ters have con­firmed they will not be call­ing in East Dun­bar­ton­shire Coun­cil’s de­ci­sion to close Camp­sie View and Merk­land Schools and to build a new fa­cil­ity in Kirk­in­til­loch.

Joint Coun­cil Leader Vaughan Moody said: “This con­sent to close Camp­sie View and Merk­land schools is the next step to­wards the de­liv­ery of a much needed new Ad­di­tional Sup­port Needs school.

“We were re­quired to no­tify Scot­tish Min­is­ters of our Coun­cil de­ci­sion back in Novem­ber, and their con­fir­ma­tion that they will not be call­ing in our de­ci­sion means we can now progress its im­ple­men­ta­tion to de­liver a new fit for pur­pose ASN school to meet our fu­ture needs.”
