We hope that many of you were able to attend the drop in at the tennis centre on Weds 3 April to see the plans for the new school on the disused artificial pitch and part of the tennis centre. If not you can see the plans and register your comments here, by 12 April. Ruth, Marlene and Steve were at the drop in and discussed the proposals with a number of residents.
Following our representations, the developers have agreed to think again about their proposals and delay the planning application beyond May.We have urged a number of improvements including:
We have also met the developers, and told them that we believe the current plans are unacceptable.
We have written to the developer to set out our objections in full. A copy of the letter is here.
We are asking for the plans to be substantially revised before a planning application is submitted, and are asking for the government appointed developer to produce a scheme more in keeping with the parkland setting.
We understand and support the need for a new school, and understand that the proposed location, while not ideal, is the best that can be found, but feel our children deserve better than that which has been proposed.
