The construction of a £25 million Dalbeattie Learning Campus has moved a step closer.
Funding for the scheme had been held up because of a European ruling, but the Scottish Government says that has now been resolved.
The building of a new £21.4 million school in Kelso has been given the go-ahead, and is expected to begin in early 2016.
Kelso High School will be built at Nethershot on Angraflat Road.
The project had stalled because of a European ruling, which affected ten schools and two health centres across the country.
But the Scottish Government now says that has been resolved.
I am pleased that the issues which have held back the new Kelso High School have finally been settled.
It has been a frustrating period for everyone associated with the school including the wider community, and the people of Kelso should be thanked for their patience during this time.
The new school will include grass and synthetic sports pitches and community facilities, which will provide health and educational benefits for not just generations of schoolchildren but the whole town.”
