Cllr Frank McNally, Convener of Education, said: "There is a considerable amount of housebuilding taking place in communities across North Lanarkshire and it is right and proper that we consider the impact this has on schools and their catchment areas.

"Where possible we will continue to do all we can to accommodate parental choice through placing requests.

"The proposals aim to ensure the sustainability of the school estate by taking account of the proposed new housing developments and aligning them to local communities."I'd encourage people to make their views known by completing the consultation forms."
