At the next meeting of the Marchmont and Sciennes Community Council (7:30pm on We 8 Jun at St Catherine's Argyle Church Halls) revised plans will be presented by the James Gillespie's High School Rebuild project.

This is the second of two meetings hosted by the community council about proposals for the much-needed rebuilding of the High School, extension of the Primary School and relocation of the Nursery School. It is in addition to a public meeting at the high school on 21 June, a meeting of the primary school parents forum on 13 June and exhibitions at Newington Library and the Eric Lidell Centre (see the project website for more details). Slides from the residents workshop earlier in May are also now available.

The meeting next week (8 June) will be a further opportunity for members of the community to hear feedback, analysis and the refinements to the proposal from the architects and the project manager before the planning application is finalised and submitted.

Project staff will be available to take questions before the meeting. All opinions welcome.
