Consultation summaryProposal to realign the school catchment areas of both Cathkin and Trinity High Schools and St Cadoc’s and Cairns Primary Schools to incorporate the housing development site at Greenlees Road (east of A749)
BackgroundThere is a current planning application (CR/14/X0102/NEW) for a housing development of approximately 240 residential units at Greenlees Farm, Cambuslang. This is located at the north of Greenlees Road and east of the A749. This development sits within the Cambuslang West Ward (see map in Appendix 2) and the developer held their pre-application consultation event in the Cambuslang area.
Why are we consulting?As the proposed development is likely to be perceived to be part of the Cathkin / Cambuslang area rather than East Kilbride, and due to the distance from existing catchment schools, it is proposed to rezone this development site to Cairns and St Cadoc’s Primary Schools (approximately 1 mile away), Cathkin High School (approximately 1 mile away) and Trinity High School (approximately 2 miles away).
Who are we consultingParents, carers, guardians
How will findings be used?When the consultation period has ended, the Council will collate all of the written and oral representations. Thereafter, this information will be provided to Education Scotland. Education Scotland will prepare a report on the educational aspects of the proposal taking account of the above, and in so far that Education Scotland considers them relevant, any written representations made directly to them. Education Scotland may also visit the schools affected by the proposal.
