Aberdeenshire Council’s Buchan Area Committee agreed the works during private session at its meeting in Peterhead on Tuesday, May 29.

The maintenance works will involve roof repairs; general improvements; drainage works; electrical repairs and ceiling upgrades and is due to take place over the summer holidays to minimise disruption.

Buchan Area Committee chair Cllr Norman Smith said: “These works will allow the council to keep Peterhead Academy operating until the new campus is ready to open in a few years’ time.

“I’d like to stress that what was agreed at the meeting will not affect the timeline for creation of the new campus.”

Councillors agreed to include £71million for a new community campus in its capital plan for 2023 – 2028 when the budget was approved in February.
