New affordable housing to be built on the site of Westside School

Works are set to commence "almost immediately" on the development which will consist of 218 flats including 36 properties built specifically for the elderly.

A statement from No.6 reads:

In the next few weeks, the clearance of the sites currently occupied by Westside School, Governors Meadow First School and Bishop Fitzgerald Middle School will commence, so as to allow the construction of the new affordable homes and new schools.

As has already been announced, pupils and staff at Bishop Fitzgerald will move temporarily to St Anne’s School whilst everyone at Governors Meadow will go to the current Bayside School premises. After just a year in their temporary homes, these two schools will move into their brand new buildings alongside the new affordable housing estate.

More details will be revealed by the Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister and the Minister for Housing at a press conference streamed live on Facebook from 12:15pm.
