St Stephens School is proposing to expand into new buildings around number 6 Lime Grove and is holding an open night this evening for residents who might be interested to know more.
The plan, I'm told by the reader who has sent me this letter, is to demolish number 6 Lime Grove and recreate the bigger original Victorian semi in its place, filling the space between 6 and 10 Lime Grove which is currently used as a car park and for vehicle access.
Please attend if you would like to ask questions about parking issues, the proposed demolition of number 6 and the extent of the building works likely to occur and when.
And consider the difference in tone and approach between the school, who clearly want to talk to local people and have them shape the future of their local area before submitting planning applications, to that of our Council to date. Let's hope this is something they might be able to emulate in future. Top marks to the school and best of luck with their plans.
