Maybole Community Campus
Designs for the new Maybole Community Campus will be put on display at Carrick Academy on the 12th of February to gather views from the community on the proposals. The exhibition is part of the planning consultation process, in advance of a full planning application, and follows an intensive period of engagement with a wide range of stakeholders in the project, including the pupils and staff, parents and community.
The new campus will be built on the site of the existing Carrick Academy and will incorporate Carrick Academy, St Cuthbert’s Primary, a new non-denominational primary school that will be formed by amalgamating Cairn Primary and Gardenrose Primary and early years provision that will operate 52 weeks of the year. It will also include a replacement for Maybole swimming pool, which will be timetabled for school and public use during the school day and will form part of a local sports hub, along with the school’s sports facilities, outwith school hours.
The all-through campus will benefit people of all ages in and around Maybole, with state of the art learning and teaching facilities and the inclusion of the pool and community access to sports facilities making the campus a vibrant community focus. It is hoped that the community campus, along with the new by-pass and planned regeneration of the high street, will bring about real and long lasting changes for the town.
Some early preparatory work is expected to start on the site later this year, with the main construction work starting in 2021. The new campus is targeted to open early 2023.
