I see in the courier & advertiser for 14th February 2018 :
The Rev Maggie Hunt in st Margarets church with plans for the centre

CHURCH TO MAKE WAY FOR COMMUNITY CENTRE :
St Margarets church in Forfar is to be DEMOLISHED to make way for a new 1million multi purpose community centre .
The plans were given the go ahead yesterday , at a meeting of an ANGUS COUNCIL development review committee .
The council had previously refused planning permission the year before but the church seems to have returned to inform the council that the Forfar library , police office , AG Barr and other firms all have modern buildings in the conservation area and it seems that this time it was approved .

Wonder what will happen to their war memorial that I presume is listed in the previous info now lost

I found St Margaret's church FORFAR Facebook page and asked them about the COURIER report that the church was to be demolished and a new one built but the reply was

The church will not be demolished but the EXISTING Victorian Sanctuary area to built a new disabled access multi purpose centre to meet as a church and a centre for the community .

Hoping the existing WAR MEMORIALS would be re housed in the new Building IF not work with appropriate organisations to preserve them .
