The design and layout of a new Aberdeenshire Community Campus has moved a step closer to being approved.
The layout agreed for the Inverurie Community Campus would accommodate a six-lane swimming pool, which is an increase in what is currently provided.
The final number of lanes will be agreed by the Communities Committee. The Education and Children’s Services Committee has decided to go ahead with the layout as it appears in the existing proposed building footprint.
Director of Education at Aberdeenshire Council Maria Walker said: “A full and frank debate took place about the building footprint and the committee was reminded of its remit to consider the layout and the education provision.
“The debate about the number of lanes in the pool is one which will rest with the Communities Committee.
“However it was important to have that level of debate at this meeting, so that members were all clear about the wider implications of their decisions.”
