PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The war in Ukraine is being said to have impacted progress with the construction of the new Perth High School. A council committee has been told the new school's opening date might be pushed back from August 2024 to December 2024/early 2025 but this has yet to be confirmed. Councillors were this week told the war - alongside Brexit and the pandemic - was causing issues with supply and prices. Perth and Kinross Council's head of business and resources Greg Boland provided an update at a meeting of Perth and Kinross Council's property sub-committee on Monday, June 13. Plans for the £68.7 million rebuild - built to Passivhaus standards - were approved by the council's planning committee in March 2022. Half of the costs will be funded by the Scottish Government Learning Estate Investment Programme.

And that's being felt across the whole of the country." PKC's head of property services Stephen Crawford explained to the committee how difficult it was to get prices for materials. He said: "At the moment getting priced tenders in for the market is very difficult. Steel prices have gone up many times.
