Harris refurbishment cost and timetable questioned

02 October 2009

Marlyn Glen has tabled questions in the Scottish Parliament saying that the "lack of urgency" in establishing a timetable for the refurbishment of Harris Academy " is leaving the construction industry in Dundee waiting for a further major boost in work."

Ms. Glen said,

" While I welcome the decision, there is a lack of urgency about the new school building programme in Scotland with all the new secondaries set to open by 2017.

"In January , Dundee City Council fast tracked the £20 million plan for four new schools to boost the construction industry in the city.

"In the past two years, the industry has waited month after month for the Scottish Government’s ‘brick for brick’ school building programme to finally get under way.

Her questions are :

To ask the Scottish Executive what estimate it has made of the cost of the refurbishment of Harris Academy, Dundee

To ask the Scottish Executive when it envisages that work will begin on the refurbishment of Harris Academy, Dundee

To ask the Scottish Executive when it envisages that work will be completed on the refurbishment of Harris Academy, Dundee
