Unfortunately, the opening of the new Academy Court (the former Chapelpark School) in Forfar has been delayed. Once work had started, the contractor discovered that the existing buildings needed additional engineering works. Poor weather then delayed the external works on the site.
Housing Service Manager, John Morrow said:
“Whilst this is disappointing, it is not unusual for developments which transform iconic buildings into a new use, to be more complex than originally foreseen. We believe this significant housing development will breathe new life into this landmark building, and this part of Forfar.”
