Nursery’s fate in the balance

Have your say

The planned closure of a Gorgie nursery is to be discussed at a public meeting.

Proposals to shut Westfield Court Nursery are currently subject to a consultation led by Edinburgh City Council.

The nursery, located on the top floor of an eight-storey block of flats, was shut down temporarily last year amid health and safety fears. Health and safety inspectors had warned the nursery could be prosecuted if a child was injured in a fire.

The meeting is at Tynecastle High School, McLeod Street, on Wednesday, September 14 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
