Consultation almost over

ANGUS Council are reminding people they have just until next Friday (November 2) to have their say on the Arbroath Schools Project.

The final two consultation workshops on the options for improving the town’s school estate took place last week.

Since the launch of the consultation in September, five workshops have taken place, giving everyone in the local community the opportunity to find out more about the three broad options for the future of the town’s 10 primary school buildings.

Angus Council’s education spokesperson councillor Sheena Welsh thanked people for their participation in these events.

She said: “The council is grateful to the parents and members of the local communities who came along to the five workshops; they were very productive sessions.

“The consultation remains open until Friday, November 2 and I would encourage anyone interested in the development of the burgh’s primaries to take the opportunity to give us their views, online, by letter or on Facebook and Twitter.”

The council is seeking feedback on three broad options: the maintenance and repairs to all schools; a combination of maintenance and repairs and refurbishment; a combination of new build/refurbishment and maintenance and repairs.

Anyone can offer their views at or comment on the council’s Facebook page or on Twitter @anguscouncil.

You can also write to the Director of Education, Angus Council, Angus House, Orchardbank Business Park, Forfar DD8 1AE.

All views or comments on the plans should be submitted by 2 November 2012.
