The current Lochies school needs expanded to meet pupils’ needs.

A recent paper to Clackmannanshire Council recommends relocating Lochies to a new site within the Alloa Academy catchment area.

Having considered a number of sites and consulted with parents the preferred site for the replacement Lochies school is beside The Pavilions Business Park near Redwell Primary school in Alloa.

Why your views matter

The Council is required to consult in accordance with the Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010, and a decision on the new site will not be taken until this process is complete and the results of the consultation are reported back to Councillors.  

Your views will help us to determine the best place to relocate the school and to consider your views within the planning process.

The consultation is very short and will take around 5 minutes to complete.

What happens next

A report will be prepared and submitted to Education Scotland in January 2023 and then to Clackmannanshire Council in February 2023.

Once approved, the final report will be uploaded to the Citizen Space consultation page.
