In June of this year, the Cheswick Green Residents Association alerted you all to the many flaws contained within the above planning application which would see the volume of pupils double. Having studied SMBC’s own Transport Assessment, concerns grew and legal guidance was sought. This led to the Cheswick Green Parish Council and Residents Association commissioning an independent survey to provide a transparent picture. Read More
IMPORTANT The plans for the school expansion have been published. See link below!!Please put in your objections by the 29th of June!
To object you either create an account on the website and can then submit comments or write to the local planning authority I.e SMBC stating planning application number, reasons, etc. You will need to really point out traffic/parking/traffic pollution in your objection as I think this is where they will take notice!!
The Council has now submitted the Local Plan to the Secretary of State (via the Planning Inspectorate) for examination.
The Plan and associated documents can be found here.
WE ASK ALL RESIDENTS TO REGISTER AN OBJECTION TO THE ABOVE PROPOSAL
From previous communications, you will be aware that Solihull Council (SMBC) is proposing to progressively double the volume of pupils attending Cheswick Green Primary School. The additional capacity is designed primarily to accommodate children from the Blythe Valley Park (BVP) housing development. Read More
During November/December last year, the Residents Association provided guidance on the proposed expansion to Cheswick Green Primary School (CGPS). Having canvassed local opinion an objection was sent to Solihull Council.
The subject is due to be discussed with the Council’s Cabinet Member next Monday (11th January 2021) with the likely outcome that the expansion will be approved in principle, subject to a detailed plan to deal with the likely increase in traffic and parking.
This outcome is not unexpected, as expanding CGPS was recommended by our Parish Council as part of their response to the Blythe Valley development plan.
