More places for pupils

PUBLISHED: 09:00 23 May 2012


PLANS to extend a Weston children’s centre to accommodate school pupils look set to get the green light next week.

North Somerset Council wants to build new facilities at Ashcombe Children’s Centre in Stepping Stone Walk.

Plans include building a single-storey extension on the east side of the building to accommodate reception children and provide space for new toilets.

A replacement play area would also be created as part of the proposals.

One letter of objection has been received, raising issues over lack of parking and a requirement for traffic management in the area at peak times.

The pre-school building, built in 2005, is on the same site as Ashcombe Primary School, where the reception children would come from.

The council says there is ‘ample’ parking on-site for school staff and that a small increase in numbers of children would not impact on traffic problems in the area.
