Parents asked for their thoughts on new school build

PARENTS of children at two Weston schools had a chance to put forward their own ideas about a new school building

PARENTS of children at two Weston schools had a chance to put forward their own ideas about a new school building.

The start of the consultation process for a new facility to replace the Bournville Junior and Infant schools in Selworthy Road took place at two meetings at the site on December 6.

A presentation was put on by the architect and construction companies, signed up to design and build the school, to allow representatives to explain their plans and to find out any concerns people may have.

The new building, which should be complete for the autumn term of 2009, will be placed on the existing school field to the west of the current buildings and when the facility is complete the old buildings will be demolished.

Parsons Binkerhoff architect, Terry Pinto, said: "This will be a building to serve the community that will also be kind to the environment by being sustainable.

"Parents can currently write down their comments on post-it boards in both the junior and infant schools, or they can approach me when I am on site or pass their comments through the headteacher Adam."

A representative of construction company Mace, Kevin Goddard, identified some issues that could arise as a result of the build, including noise and dust from building work and the fact the school will over look some properties.

He welcomed comments from nearby residents in the hope of solving any worries they may have.
