Time running out to join Oldfield School move public debate

The deadline is drawing close to register for the chance to speak at a meeting that will decide on controversial plans to move Oldfield Primary School.

The Royal Borough has set a deadline of 5pm next Monday for people to notify it that they want to address a decision-making planning panel at an extraordinary public meeting.

It will be at the Holiday Inn, Shoppenhangers Road, on Wednesday, December 11.

The £9m plan by the borough to move the school from Chiltern Road to a field off Bray Road has been heavily criticised by opponents.

They say the build would be completely inappropriate as it is a greenbelt field and in a floodplain.

More than 600 people have signed the Oldfield Action Group's petition supporting the move to Bray Road.

The action group says a new site is needed as Oldfield Primary is oversubscribed.

Call democratic services officer Rob Cowan on 01628 796310 to register to speak at the meeting.
