Portlethen Schools debate

A MEETING is to be held at Lairhillock Primary School as part of an Aberdeenshire wide Schools Consultation survey and members of the community in Portlethen have suggested that it is a good setting to get more information on the issue of schooling in Portlethen.

The meeting will take place on December 15.

It was revealed at a recent meeting of Portlethen and District Community Council that the Phase 2 start date of the Hillside housing development, which ultimately drives the deadline date for the council accepting the allocated land from SMH for the school at Hillside is 2008, meaning that the deadline for the council to build a school on the site is 2013 and not 2016-17 as was indicated by officials in October.
