School case adjourned

A JUDICIAL review into whether the £8 million ‘super school’ in Arbroath should go ahead has been adjourned.

When the case called at the Court of Session on Thursday, it was adjourned with new dates set up for June 28 and 29.

The review centres on the plans to close Muirfield and Timmergreens primaries and merge the pupils into a brand new building at Hospitalfield House.

Angus Council had approved the proposal, but the education secretary, Mike Russell, called in the plans for further examination, and then axed them completely.

But the local authority decided to challenge Mr Russell’s decision and launched an appeal.

However, the SNP said they would scrap the whole project if they won the local council election.

And as Friday’s count showed that they are now the party in administration, it is possible the case might now be dropped.
