Notices will be published on the proposal to open a new Aeron Valley area school on a new site, and also to close Felinfach, Ciliau Parc and Dihewyd primary schools. The publication of a statutory notice gives people the chance to make an objection to the proposal.

The development comes after Ceredigion County Council’s Cabinet approved the recommendation to publish the notices.

Councillor Catrin Miles is the Cabinet member responsible for Learning Services. She said, “Publishing the notices will help us carry on with our plan to open a brand new school in the Aeron Valley. It’s a chance for us to have brand new infrastructure and equipment to benefit the education of children in the Aeron Valley.

If people have concerns over the plan, they can object to the notices and make their voice heard.”

The final decision on opening the new area school and close the existing three schools will be taken in a full Council meeting in December 2019.

The notices will be published on 16 September and will close on 13 October.
