Primary school set to be delayed

PUBLISHED: 04:17 30 November 2001 | UPDATED: 10:56 03 March 2010

THE huge public response to the biggest planning scheme in Woodbridge for decades has delayed the decision on the future of a primary school.

An exhibition on the project to build a new school generated so much interest that there were 1,000 visitors in two days – and hundreds of them completed surveys which now have to be analysed.

THE huge public response to the biggest planning scheme in Woodbridge for decades has delayed the decision on the future of a primary school.

An exhibition on the project to build a new school generated so much interest that there were 1,000 visitors in two days – and hundreds of them completed surveys which now have to be analysed.

Further time is required to evaluate all the information before the county council can decide whether to proceed with the ambitious scheme.

It involves turning the present library into possibly a medical centre, and converting the main building at New Street primary school into the new library.

Houses would be built around the playground, and a new school would be constructed at a cost of £1.5m on a reserved site in Pytches Road.
