*** NLC APRIL 2024 UPDATE ***

The planned repurposing works to reinstate daytime access to community spaces at Stepps Primary has finished.

Building Control are still required to sign off on the works in the community hall and multi-purpose rooms before they can be occupied.   The contractor is working through some snagging issues to allow this to happen.  The letting team will be notified as and when these spaces are available.


The library space has now been signed off by building control and will very shortly be handed over to Library Services.  There will now be a period of time whereby, Library Services and the Council’s incumbent contractors will work together to get the space ready to be occupied.


NLC will continue to communicate updates of these works with the next update being provided at the end of April 2024.

January 2021 Update

The community council is fully committed in its support regarding the two matters Stepps Primary School is currently facing , namely, major remedial drainage works and an ongoing overcapacity issue.


The remedial drainage works are to address the drainage issues beneath the school building and it appears an option has been agreed between the North Lanarkshire Council (NLC) and Transform Schools North Lanarkshire (TSNL). 

The Greek Theatre has been demolished and preparatory works carried out for the installation of modular units to provide additional teaching space. In addition, new parking restrictions are in operation. At this stage the strategy remains to relocate the library and community facilities to premises at 7 Buchanan Gate. No further update on this at present.

The overcapacity issue was raised in 2018. Since then the community council has made many representations to NLC on this issue. To date NLC has been intransigent in providing a response.
