Plans for new Douglas primary school on display

There was a chance to examine plans for a new Douglas primary school today (Wed 17th)

The Noble's primary will be built on the old hospital site on Westmoreland road and will bring together the current Ballacloan infants and Fairfield junior schools.

If approved, it's hoped the facility can come on stream by September 2016.

Plans were on display at Fairfield Junior school between 3.30 and 7pm today

Estates Director at the Department of Education, Richard Collister, says the long-serving old schools are no longer suitable for modern educational needs
