Your views on plans for new school and community facilities at Danderhall
A second consultation on proposals for a new primary school and community facilities at Danderhall will be held next month.
Drop in to see the plans
Public drop in sessions will take place at Danderhall library, 1a Campview, on Tuesday 7 August between 2 and 8pm. Plans and elevations for the proposed new building will be on display. All are welcome to attend.
Midlothian Council is carrying out the consultation prior to submitting a planning application for the proposed development at the site of the existing Danderhall Primary School. As well as a new primary school, the proposals are for combined community and leisure facilities including a new library.
This latest consultation follows one earlier in the year where most local residents expressed their preference for a new primary school and community facilities such as a cafe, sports hall, library, meeting space and activity spaces for children.
Work starts next year
The council’s cabinet member for education, Cllr Jim Muirhead said: “We’re taking the views of local people on board and we’re delighted to be able to move ahead with the proposed redevelopment of this key site. Building work could start by the middle of next year, resulting in an excellent new learning environment for local children and superb new facilities for the wider community.”
