EXHIBITION boards have been put up in Galashiels to show the potential options for the new community campus.

Scottish Borders Council (SBC) has installed the signs at the town's Transport Interchange.

The boards, which form part of the wider online public consultation, show details of the five possible options to replace Galashiels Academy.

Among them is the local authority's preferred option, which involved building part of the 1,000-plus pupil school in Scott Park.

Carol Hamilton, Scottish Borders Council's executive member for children and young people, said: “The Galashiels Community Campus will be a focal point for the local and wider community in years to come, and it’s important during this consultation that we reach and receive feedback from as many people as possible.

"COVID-19 has meant we’ve had to adapt our consultation and take it primarily online, but we understand not everyone will have internet access.

“These graphics boards give a full overview of all the proposals and mean we can reach all parts of society to gather their views and ensure the full-range of feedback is received.”

The council has posted videos and interviews online as part of the consultation.

Since its launch on March 17, SBC says the website has recorded more than 750 unique visits, with visitors spending an overall total of 11 days, 23 hours and 50 minutes on the site.
