New bids in for former school

NEW bids have been received for a neglected former school building in Edinburgh.

The council-owned Curriehill Primary School site, which has been plagued by vandals since it closed in 2007, was expected to become a supermarket.

But the deal fell through earlier this year, following previous unsuccessful bids to develop the Lanark Road West site.

A spokesman for the city council said it had received “a number of good offers” since the 2.67 acre site was remarketed.
