COUNCILLORS have today agreed to progress building of the new Lossiemouth High School.
Costs for the project had escalated due to the challenges presented by the build, including difficult ground conditions. However officers have been working to redesign elements of the school and, as agreed by councillors, the total extra cost to the council will now be £1.3m.
Changes to the design have been made, but without compromising on classroom sizes or community facilities. Moray Council, with funding from the Scottish Futures Trust, remains committed to completing the build by June 2020 to include a new secondary school, community centre, library, 3G pitch and swimming pool.
Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
