Penicuik’s Midfield home to be replaced

A NEW, four-bed home for looked-after young people is to be built in Penicuik.

Midlothian councillors recently agreed that the new facility, which will go part of the way to replacing Midfield Young People’s Centre, will be located on the site of the former Eastfield Clinic, Eastfield Drive.

Earlier this year, the council decided to replace the outdated accommodation at Midfield, in Lasswade, with two four-bed facilities. Work is ongoing to identify a second suitable site, which will accommodate youngsters aged 10 to 18 years.
