The business case for Peterhead Community Campus in Aberdeenshire has been approved.

A replacement for the current Peterhead Academy building with the Community Campus is a priority in Aberdeenshire Council's capital plan.

Now the business case is approved, officers can work up and agree funding arrangements, whilst planning for the construction of the new community complex, which is due to be complete in 2025.

Residents, parents and carers have had their say in two statutory consultations. One on the proposed merger of Dales Park and Meethill schools and the other concerning the relocation of Anna Ritchie Special School on to the Community Campus site. The findings from both consultations will be considered by members of the Buchan Area Committee and the Education and Children’s Services Committee later this year.

The campus may include a hydrotherapy and warm water swimming pool. It is anticipated there will be sport, leisure and cultural facilities constructed including a new swimming pool near Peterhead town centre.
