A number of issues have been identified at the new £38.9 million Forfar Community campus, which opened last month.

A regular user contacted us last week highlighting the lack of public parking spaces during school hours.

She said: “Getting a space is almost impossible as they are taken up by staff and pupils.”

It also emerged there were problems with the door of the sauna and paint was appearing to fall off the ceiling of the steam room.

On Wednesday ANGUSalive, the culture, sport and leisure trust for Angus, Tweeted: “Please note that we have had to close the studio pool at Forfar Community Campus until further notice. We will notify customers here when it has been re opened.”

When contacted an ANGUSalive spokesperson said: “The hatch in the swimming pool reopened on March 15. The contractor was notified and the pool was closed until 10am on March 16 while work was completed to close the hatch.”

An Angus Council spokesperson said: “It is fantastic to see the popularity of the community campus. We are aware that this is having an effect on the available car parking spaces at the campus and are currently monitoring the situation. We are in discussion with the contractor to fix the sauna door and paint in the steam room.”
