Peterhead school consultation events to take place online

Linked to the Peterhead Community Campus project, two events to take place as part of statutory consultation processes will go ahead online rather than in-person during the next few weeks.

The statutory consultation in relation to the relocation of Anna Ritchie School in Peterhead is running from 7 December 2020 to 26 February 2021. 

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions officers are unable to hold the face-to-face public meeting; however, the virtual meeting will take place as planned at 6pm on Wednesday 20 January 2021. Members of the community can access the meeting from the following link: Virtual Meeting on Consultation of Relocation of Anna Ritchie School 

The statutory consultation in relation to the merger of Dales Park and Meethill Schools is also ongoing, running from 7 December 2020 to 26 February 2021. 

A virtual meeting will take place as part of this consultation as planned on 3 February 2021 at 6.30pm. Members of the community can access the meeting via the following link: Virtual Meeting on Consultation of Merger of Dales Park and Meethill Schools 

Participants using a mobile device will need to download the Microsoft Teams app ahead of the meeting as the web version is not supported. If you are using a laptop/desktop, officers recommend you use the web version. 

Anyone wishing to submit any questions in advance of either meetings should email LearningEstates@aberdeenshire.gov.uk 

It is not anticipated that the end date for the consultations will change, however, if current restrictions continue this may become necessary. 

Any written comments on the proposal must be received by Aberdeenshire Council within the above period for them to be taken into account. They can be emailed to LearningEstates@aberdeenshire.gov.uk or posted to Aberdeenshire Council, Gordon House, Blackhall Road, Inverurie, AB51 3WA. 

Online surveys will also remain open as part of the consultations. A link to these can be found at: http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/schools/education-consultations/
