Plans for two new multi-million-pound Aberdeen primary schools have been revealed.
Planning documents have been submitted for a new primary school, including a nursery and synthetic pitch, at the expanding Countesswells development.
Meanwhile, another application has been lodged for primary school and community centre, with a nursery and sports facilities, at the former Torry Academy site.
Halliday Fraser Munro would be the agent for both projects, if approved, and would construct them on behalf of the local authority.
Now members of the public are being invited to view the proposals at a series of consultation events next week.
The Countesswells event is being held next Wednesday at Stewart Milne Sales Office at Countesswells, from 3pm-7pm, while the Torry event will be on Thursday at Tullos Community Centre learning resources room from 3pm-7pm.
The ruling Conservative, Aberdeen Labour and independent administration has previously costed four new primary schools in Milltimber, Tillydrone, Torry and Countesswells at £100million.
Torry Academy, which closed in July along with Kincorth to be amalgamated into the £47million Lochside Academy, will be demolished soon.
Hazlehead, Queens Cross and Countesswells councillor Martin Greig, who is also the Liberal Democrats education spokesman, welcomed the new schools but said the council shouldn’t ignore its existing estate.
He said: “Two primaries and a secondary are being programmed in for Countesswells dependent on the speed of occupancy and I think schools will be really important for attracting families to the area.
“While this is welcome it is also important that the council looks at its existing estate around the city.”
Education convener John Wheeler welcomed the progress on the new schools, adding: “It is good the see these projects moving forwards.
“I think our record on the school estate speaks for itself with the recent opening of the £47million Lochside Academy just one highlight.”
