Plans to build an extension at Chirnside Primary School in order to provide a new classroom are set to be given the green light.

A flat-roofed single storey extension to the rear of the school, approximately 2.4 metres high, has been proposed.

The planning application also includes new ramp access and other alterations to the inside and outside of the building.

The internal alterations consist of a new doorway to the classroom and a stud partition wall to form a new corridor.

The application has been recommended for approval as long as work begins within three years.

A decision expected to be made at a meeting on Monday.

Chirnside Primary School is a listed building, but planning officer Lucy Head states in her report: “Overall, the scale, mass and form of the proposals are considered to be visually acceptable for the listed building.”

Her report also states that the community council and Historic Scotland supports the proposal.
