The original intention had been to open the school buildings at Lufton and Wyndham Park in September 2016. Planning and access issues have delayed the projects but interim arrangements have been made at Huish Primary to provide the necessary spaces until the new school buildings are ready.
The latest update on the Wyndham Park project is that the County Council plans to build a seven classroom school on land within Wyndham Park which is scheduled to be ready in time for the start of the 2017 academic year. There will be scope to build another seven classrooms on adjacent land if the Primrose Lane housing development is progressed.
Initially the Council had submitted plans for a seven classroom school on the Primrose Lane development, with the ability to extend to 14 classrooms. However, uncertainties around planning consents meant it would not be able to deliver the school in time for the 2017 academic year and there was no certainty of a delivery date.
The Council’s new approach gives certainty of a school on the Wyndham Park site in time for the 2017 academic year.
The planning application for the Lufton School was submitted before Christmas. The current expected latest completion date is February 2018, however, the County Council remains hopeful that there may be scope to bring this date forward.
We are committed to making sure school spaces are available when they are needed, and our officers continue to work with South Somerset District Council and developers to progress the building of the schools as quickly as possible.
This has been, and remains, a challenge, but we would reiterate that there will two new primary schools in Yeovil, amounting to millions of pounds of investment. The funding is in place, as are two great sponsors to take these new schools forward.
