John Pentland has revealed that plans for the upgrade of Clyde Valley High School may be about to take a big step forward.
The news came in a phone call to John from Barry White, Chief Executive of the Scottish Futures Trust
“Barry White phoned to say that the SFT would be meeting North Lanarkshire Council soon, and that he was optimistic that the council proposals for Clyde Valley High School could see construction brought forward by up to eighteen months, with completion in 2014/15 rather than 2016.
“This follows a meeting that I set up last year between the council, the SFT, Cabinet Secretary Mike Russell and myself, at which I presented Mr Russell with a petition organised by Sam Love and Frank McKay, and signed by thousands of constituents. It looks like it had the desired effect, so a big thank you to everyone who signed – it’s nice to know that your voice has been heard.”
