Harris Academy - discussion with the City Council's Chief Executive

As reported in yesterday's Courier, earlier this week I spoke with the City Council's Chief Executive to express my concern about possible delays to the start of the Harris Academy refurbishment, caused by Scottish Government insistence that procurement goes through the, as yet not fully established, East Central Territory "Hub."

I was given an assurance that a report will come to the Education Committee before the council recess at the end of June to give an update on the proposed project, its timescales and feedback on the revised feasibility study currently underway.

It is vitally important that the project proceeds as soon as possible.
