Update on Temporary and Permanent Planning Applications
As you may know, the planning application for the temporary school is currently being considered by Bromley Council. We are delighted that over 100 people have written in support of the temporary application so far and we would continue to encourage you to submit your comments.
The easiest way to access information about the planning application is through the project website –bwsfb2019.com – this has a link to the council’s consultation page, and some example reasons for supporting the application.
The application is still on track for a decision this spring, as planned, and approval will ensure that BWSFB is able to move to St Hugh’s in September 2019.
The target date for the delivery of the permanent school is September 2020. All parties including the Trust, DfE and Kier are working hard to drive this forward. Should there be a delay, the DfE will provide extra temporary classroom space at St Hugh’s during the autumn tern of 2020.
The DfE remains absolutely committed to St Hugh’s as the new home for BWSFB from September 2019.
