Councillors Uphold Parents' Concerns in Burnhaven School Re-Zoning

>> Wednesday, 14 January 2015

Parental concerns over proposed changes to the zone for Burnhaven School were upheld at yesterday’s meeting of the Buchan Area Committee by councillors.

A major redrawing of the school zone boundaries in the Peterhead area would have seen the Burnhaven School zone split and pupils starting school in the 2015/15 term being zoned for Meethill School. However, parents raised concerns that this would involve crossing the main A982 South Road. Councillors today backed parents and agreed to make no changes to the current zone for Burnhaven School.

Speaking after the meeting, Peterhead South & Cruden SNP councillor Stephen Smith said:

“I’m aware from speaking to parents that there was a lot of concern regarding the changes being proposed to the Burnhaven boundary, principally on the grounds of road safety.

“I’m pleased that the Committee decided unanimously that there should be no changes to the current Burnhaven boundary in light of these very real concerns about traffic and road safety.”

Buchan Area Committee Chairman and Peterhead South & Cruden SNP councillor Stuart Pratt added:

“The South Road is a busy road at the best of times but to have young children crossing the road even with a crossing patroller would have been unacceptable.”
