Theresa May 'monitoring' Furze Platt school plans

A letter has been written to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council by Maidenhead MP Theresa May about the Furze Platt Senior School proposal.

The Home Secretary has asked the Maidenhead council to address the concerns which exist over Summerleaze's plans and ensure they are considered during the decision-making process.

These include fears over the increased demand for school places and the strain on infrastructure caused by the new housing and development on greenbelt land.

"Although these plans are currently still in the preliminary stages, and there is a definite need for structural improvements at Furze Platt Senior School, the council must ensure that the issues raised by my constituents are given proper consideration," she said.

"I will continue to monitor the situation."

The school is working with Summerleaze on plans which could see it moved to Spencers Farm in North Town by 2015.

A residents meeting was held last night to help form an action group to oppose the plans.
