Norfolk County Council - Construction of new PRIMARY SCHOOL on land off Plantation Road, Blofield - Plans for proposed new school

FACEBOOK

Dear Neighbour,

As part of Norfolk County Council (NCC) Children's Services continuing commitment to invest in the growth of primary education provision we are proposing an exciting new 2 form entry primary school.

 

This will provide a modern building with 14 classrooms, hall, studio space and outside area and playing field for 420 children.

 

There will only be one access route from Plantation Road for vehicular and pedestrian access. No access, pedestrian or vehicular will be provided to the school site from Farman Way.

 

A design team from NPS Property Consultants Ltd has been working closely with the County Council on possible solutions and we are getting close to agreeing a final design. We anticipate submitting a planning application in September 2022, and before doing so we would like to share the proposal with local residents.

 

Children’s Services will be holding an informal exhibition event on Monday 4th July at Blofield Primary School, Blofield, NR13 4RH, between 3:30pm and 6:00pm.

 

Representatives from NPS Property Consultants, NCC (and the school) will be available to answer questions you may have about the plans.

 

We are conscious that although national restrictions for Covid 19 have been lifted, we still wish to minimise large groups of people meeting. To accommodate this, we are proposing to offer 20-minute timeslots with anyone who would like to come along and look at the plans. If you wish to come along, please get in touch via the email address overleaf. Appointment by booking only.

 

Please be aware this event is specifically concerned with the school development only and we will be unable to discuss or advise on any development of the wider Blofield area.

 

Alternatively, the outline proposals are in this link  and please comment by email to the address below by 31st of July 2022. Once the planning application has been submitted there will be the opportunity for individuals and interested parties to express their views to the planning authority. If approved, it is hoped work will start May 2023, with an approximate 12 month build duration.  

 

Please note: These plans and dates are subject to change. Please check NCC Planning website once the application has been submitted.

 

If you would like to discuss any of the above or have any queries regarding the proposals please contact Chris Brooker, Children’s Services Project Officer by email at: schoolreview@norfolk.gov.uk
