EBAG to monitor new academy

ELLON environmental group EBAG are set to play an important role in the construction of the new Ellon Academy, with a brief that includes monitoring the environmental impact of the construction.

Group chairman Bob Davis told the Times: “Our biggest and potentially most important work will be in relation to the proposals for the new Ellon Academy. EBAG has entered into a partnership with the Council and the school to work closely with them on environmental matters at the proposed site up at Cromleybank. This is great news for the areas wildlife and the town in general as it means that we (EBAG) have a direct line into the younger generation. Having a strong voice on environmental matters, even before building begins, is a huge leap forward.”
