Oakdale Primary School Expansion receives planning permission

The Planning Committee today approved the application to expand the school to two form entry increasing from 210 pupils to 420 pupils and providing an additional 30 nursery places.

However after hearing personally from a local resident at the meeting and taking into account the representations residents have made to officers and to me, Brian & Ray, I can confirm stringent conditions were set by officers and agreed┬áby the committee (25 of them in total) for example…

C20 – Development shall not commence before details of access to the site including changes to the adopted highway. mitigating measures to restrict vehicles passing over the zebra crossing, highway construction, highway drainage and street lighting have been submitted and approved.

Residents nearby and we as your ward councillors, will expect to be included in the consultation process regarding these highways issues in due course.
