We Asked

The Council was proposing to expand and re-locate Lisburne School in order to improve learning opportunities and the quality of the School’s facilities as well as provide additional places for the growing number of children who need them.

You Said

A total of five representations were received which largely repeat concerns about traffic and parking in the locality, which will be addressed as part of the Planning application and highways proposals that are designed to mitigate any impact as part of the proposed new scheme.

We Did

We have sent out a letter outlining the outcome of this consultation.

Following consideration of the representations by the Deputy Chief Executive, the final decision has now been taken, meaning that the school will be expanded and re-located, subject to achieving planning permission. This can be viewed here.

Overview

The Council is proposing to expand and re-locate Lisburne School in order to improve learning opportunities and the quality of the School’s facilities as well as provide additional places for the growing number of children who need them. The specific proposal is to:

  • Re-locate the School from Half Moon Lane to a larger, new building on the former Offerton School site from September 2021;
  • Increase the number of places available at the School to 208 following the re-location.

The proposal is subject to consultation and final agreement following consideration of all responses.

If the proposal to re-locate the School is not approved, further expansion of the provision could not happen as there is not the physical space at the existing school site to accommodate additional numbers.

Please see below for the dates and times of the Drop-in Consultation sessions. Additional sessions can be arranged if needed.
