Wilmslow's first academy plans for extension


To enable them to provide entry for two classes each year, a Wilmslow primary school has submitted plans to build four new classrooms.

The Governors of Lacey Green Primary Academy School have applied for permission to construct a single storey extension to accommodate four new classrooms, teaching stores and cloakroom areas.

Proposals also include a new external sports store, to replace the ones affected by the construction of the classroom extension, and to infill the covered play area for reception to create a new staff office and store.

Plans also include building a new shared reception covered play area at the front of the school and increasing the external play area for infants.

The school became an academy in 2011 and since then it has grown in popularity. As a result 60 pupils were admitted in September 2012.

The above proposals will enable the school to provide for two form entry each year.

The planning application can be viewed of the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 13/1189M. The last date for submitting comments is 8th May and a decision is expected by May 23rd.
