The planning application was passed at City level late in June. I have to say I am enormously pleased that the support of our school community, governors, residents and councillors really helped to move this through quickly for all of our children. It was a very large piece of work, but a brilliant result for the children.
The next stage will be the legal ‘stopping up’ of the pathway and re-routing around our greenspace. In addition to this, our plans have been submitted to The Secretary of State as he now has to approve the plans as Sport England have a concern which needs a ruling. Let’s hope that this final piece of the puzzle fits into place and we can begin with the fencing and pathway works in September.
