Some residents are understandably concerned at the possibility of losing use of the community facilities at the school. This is being proposed by developers so that pre-school provision can be increased to meet the additional need caused by new developments.
It is true that the County Council can, if they wished, take over the community rooms and use them for pre-school use. This has always been the case. However if they do so they must either provide equivalent accommodation elsewhere or offer financial compensation.
The text of the agreement with the County Council is shown here.
