Council welcomes Scottish Government investment programme.

Plans to improve facilities for learning and leisure in Neilston have taken an important step forward with the welcome announcement that the council is to receive support funding as part of the first phase of a £1billion Scottish Government investment programme.

The site of Neilston Primary and Madras Family Centre will provide the cornerstone of the learning campus development comprising a new Neilston Primary, St Thomas' Primary, Madras Family Centre and new library, with the village to also benefit from improved leisure facilities.

Having received approval following a statutory education consultation and inclusion of investment within the Council's capital plan at an estimated build of £30million, the project development is already well advanced.

Now that support funding has been confirmed, the next stage is to design a campus approach in Neilston village involving all stakeholders to ensure it meets local needs for learning and wellbeing now and in the future.

Councillor Paul O'Kane, Convener for Education and Equalities at East Renfrewshire Council -

‘This investment is fantastic news for the pupils, parents and residents of Neilston and beyond. Having received such positive feedback from the consultation reassures me that this will be welcomed by the community. We can now start developing our phase 1 plans for the new learning campus as soon as possible. It's extremely exciting for Neilston and will give our residents modern, fit-for-purpose facilities in the village. We will continue to work closely with the community as these plans progress and I look forward to being involved in this work. ‘

The learning campus will retain the unique identities of both schools, with each having its own head teacher and Parent Councils, and while of a similar size to the Faith Schools' Joint Campus (St Clare's Primary and Calderwood Lodge Primary and Nursery Class) which opened in Newton Mearns in August 2017, will be designed as part of the community of Neilston village.

It will also be designed in full consultation with pupils, parents, staff, the Catholic Church and other local stakeholders to ensure it best meet the needs of children, staff, parents and the community.

A number of additional homes are planned for the area in the coming years, which will lead to a steady but moderate rise in school rolls, so this new campus will ensure the educational provision in the area meets the growing needs of the community.]]>

I would encourage all East Renfrewshire Council Tax Payers/Residents to ask their Councillors that all these Committee meetings are Webcast and made available for viewing at their own convenience.

You should not have to sit in a Public Gallery at a date and time of the Councillors choosing.

You should be able to view these committee meetings at a time convenient to you.

In these modern times openness and transparency is the Democracy we should be embracing.]]>
