Investment in Ysgol Llangadog
Tuesday 13th of February 2018
The first sod has been cut to mark the start of a £4.5million investment in Ysgol Llangadog.
Work is being jointly funded by Carmarthenshire County Council and the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools programme to remodel and refurbish and extend the existing school building.
The project is part of the council’s Modernising Education Programme (MEP) which aims to give every child in the county access to first class accommodation and facilities.
Local contractor WRW has been appointed to carry out the work.
The scheme has been structured in two phases and is expected to be completed during the 2020 spring term.
When completed, the project will provide the school with 120 primary school places. The building will also be used by an external provider to deliver 30 nursery places.
There will also be the construction of a carpark with 52 spaces, associated highways, access and landscaping works.
Education executive board member Cllr Glynog Davies said: “I’m pleased to see that the work has started on Ysgol Llangadog. This work will ensure that the school will offer first class facilities for both the teachers and pupils.”
The council’s Modernising Education Programme has invested £250m to date in Carmarthenshire schools, including the building of eight new primaries and two new secondaries.
