Decision to go to Statutory Notice

Following the decision by the Executive Councillor to move to the next stage of the process, a Statutory Notice will be published in the local press on 8 August 2019 and also at the entrance gates of the school.

The publication of this notice marks the start of the Representation Period which will end on 5 September 2019. This gives a further opportunity for people and organisations to express their views and ensure that they are taken into account when the final decision is taken by the executive councillor on 1 November 2019.
