Security increase following Harris Academy former building fire

Increased security at Harris Academy
Following my call for increased security at the Perth Road Harris Academy site after the fire in the soon-to-be demolished building on Sunday evening, I have welcomed an assurance I received late yesterday from the City Council about the matter.

A Council representative advised me :

‘Robertson Construction have confirmed that they are increasing security commencing at 16:30 today running through the night until site opening hours each morning.   Weekend security starts at 16:00 hrs on a Friday and runs through the weekend until the start of work on Monday mornings.’

I am pleased that the contractor has increased security so that there is round the clock security when the construction staff are not present.   I am grateful for the prompt and positive response to my request given the recent fire incident and an attempted theft of copper.
