Consultation launched for new Barrhead High School

Consultation launched for new Barrhead High School
A public consultation has been launched into plans to build a new Barrhead High School ahead of a formal planning application for the BDP designed school.

Funded by East Renfrewshire Council and the Scottish Futures Trust the £27m scheme will be built behind the existing school at Cowan Park, which will be demolished upon completion to make way for parkland.

The consultation will take place on 28 January in the Ralston Room of Barrhead High between 15:00 and 20:00, with work scheduled to get underway in the summer for completion by December 2016.

The new school follows on the heels of a new town centre Asda superstore.

I like the idea of getting the kids involved in the design process. Please may we see the architect's drawings as well?

Never mind proportion - BDP won't be there to talk about bloody anything. How vacuous is this on the scale of vacuity? At least I know I'll have to give Cowan Park a wide berth in future - save me being sucked into that worm-hole, into the nothingness. By the way, whatever happened to that lovely man, Leon Krier? is he still alive? At least he had an idea! Oh! An idea! What's that then?!
