A proposal to relocate Dunvegan Primary School to a new building received approval today (1 March 2017) from The Highland Council’s Education, Children and Adult Services Committee.
Members of the committee agreed to recommend to The Highland Council that the school should be re-located to a new build at Lonmore, less than a mile from its current location. The new site offers the opportunity for the school to be co-located with planned new community facilities.
Chair of the Education, Children and Adult Services Committee, Cllr Drew Millar said: “We received over 70 responses to the public consultation exercise, and there was overwhelming support for the Council’s proposal. The existing school accommodation is very dilapidated and today’s decision paves the way for a new school.
“It’s very good news for both the Council and the community, and I hope now that working with the community and the North West Skye Recreational Association we will have a first class facility for everyone in the area to be proud of in the not too distant future.”
