College seeks permission for two new ‘wings’.
CHULMLEIGH Community College is applying for planning permission to build 13 new classrooms to replace out-dated buildings at the school.
The classrooms would be housed in two new wings alongside a new 12-room block already under construction.
The two storey buildings would be used to teach maths, English, special needs and computer skills (ICT). They will form the second phase of a major investment in new accommodation at the school.
A design and access statement submitted with the planning applications concludes: “The proposal seeks to further the success of the school and the young people it serves.
“The building rationalises and replaces existing structures that are sub-optimal for modern teaching practices.”
The plans will be determined by North Devon Council following a period of public consultation.
