A FURTHER consultation outlining more detailed plans for the replacement of the existing Peebles High School building is now available to view online

Updated designs outline the proposals for replacing the existing school with a transformational facility designed to “support the delivery of a 21st century curriculum and provide wide-ranging community sporting benefits”.

The updated online consultation site offers members of the public the opportunity to learn more about the project, showcasing details of the proposed site plans and designs which have been further developed and refined.

Online public meetings are being held this month which will showcase the designs for the Campus and explain the decision making for the project whilst also allowing for the public to feedback on the initial designs.

Members of the public are being encouraged to attend and can register their interest by emailing Peeblescampus@scotborders.gov.uk

The public can also revisit the materials presented as part of the initial consultation including videos explaining the overarching vision for the project which has been heavily influenced by the surrounding Peebles area.

A summary report taking into account the feedback gathered from this stage of consultation will be produced as part of a full planning application later this year.

The target for completion of the new campus is December 2025.

Councillor Carol Hamilton, Executive Member for Children and Young People said: “Consultation with the local community at this stage of a project is a crucial part in helping us develop finalised designs that meet the needs and requirements of the whole community.

“Our vision for the new Peebles Community Campus is to offer the very best in education and community facilities whilst creating a facility that recognises and celebrates the unique beauty of the Peebles area.

“I’d encourage as many people as possible to attend the public meetings scheduled for this month to hear from the Officers directly involved in the development of this Campus and find out more about the details and vision for the project.”
