EC and S Committee 27 March 2014 Agenda Decisions and Minutes

Report on this consultation:


Aberdeen City Council propose to:

To re-zone the part of Mile End School Delineated (Catchment) Area which includes the Foresterhill Hospital Complex area from Mile End School to Cornhill School and from Aberdeen Grammar School to St Machar Academy. 

Consultation period

A period of Statutory Consultation is scheduled between 4 November and 18 December, 2013 (inclusive), a total of 32 school days.

The period of public consultation must last a minimum of thirty school days. Monday 11 November 2013 is an in-service day and therefore excluded from contributing to the requisite number of days in the consultation period.

**Important: Consultation document update**

The following change to the Statutory Consultation Document should be noted:

Page 7, Paragraph 1.9 should read:

1.9 Potential involvement of Scottish Ministers

As this proposal does not involve school closures, it will not be considered for call-in by Scottish Ministers.

Public meeting

A public consultation meeting will be held on

Tuesday 19 November,  2013 from 7:00 – 8.30pm at Mile End School.

In addition, officers will provide one opportunity per named school to meet with Parent Council representatives to discuss the proposals. 

Other requests from relevant partner organisations will be considered by officers as appropriate.
Meetings will be held with pupils (who are considered to be of a suitable age and maturity) and staff in the affected schools. A note will be taken of questions, responses and views expressed and these will also be published on the web site and within in the Consultation Report.
