Hopes of establishing a major new cultural hub have been wrecked after a multi-million pound bid from a community arts organisation was trumped by a housing developer.

It is understood city chiefs have recommended accepting a £14.5 million offer from Cala Homes for the old Boroughmuir High School building.

Cala’s proposal would see the category B-listed structure ­converted into an apartment complex with around 100 flats.
