Jedburgh Learning Campus given seal of approval
The Scottish Government has consented funding to build an intergenerational campus in the Scottish Borders town of Jedburgh following a decision to close and merge the town’s existing secondary and two primaries.

6.85 hectares of land have been selected for the build at Hartrigge Park with work expected to get underway by spring 2018 for completion by spring 2020 should planning permission be obtained.

Explaining the decision to select the chosen site a consultation document wrote: “The only site capable of accommodating the building and external sports facilities is Hartrigge Park and Parkside Primary.

“Added benefits include that it is a vacant site, is directly adjacent to three of the largest employers in Jedburgh and could potentially unlock access to a further housing site.”

Stallan-Brand are assisting Scottish Borders Council and Hub South East Scotland with their initial plans with BAM Construction serving as main contractor.

In tandem with the Jedburgh announcement funding has also been unlocked for Sighthill Community Campus in Glasgow and replacements for Underbank and Walston primaries in South Lanarkshire.
