Plans to build new council headquarters on the site of the former Dalkeith High School are still on the table, it has emerged.

In a written statement issued to Dalkeith and District Community Council, local councillor Margot Russel (Lab) confirmed that the proposal, first revealed in the Advertiser in July 2012, remains a possibility.

She revealed: “A letter from the [council] chief executive states that this site may be looked at for either housing or community and leisure. A new council headquarters is not off the table yet.”
