Scartho school plans given the go ahead

A new primary school is set for Scartho after plans were approved by Councillors at a planning meeting last week.

The proposed plans for a new primary school in Scartho went before a meeting of the Council’s planning committee last Wednesday, and were approved with conditions.

The school, for children aged 4 to 11, will be built on land off Matthew Telford Park in Scartho.

Proposals for another primary school on land known as ‘Sunningdale’ in Waltham were deferred for further discussion.

The site in Scartho is owned by the Council and has been earmarked for education provision for some time.

Councillor Margaret Cracknell, portfolio holder for children and education at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “I’m really pleased that Councillors have approved the plans for a new primary school in Scartho after much careful consideration.

“In the coming years, school places will be much-needed and I await with interest the decision on the Waltham site. Together, these schools would represent a boost of some-210 additional school places, including a number of places for children with special educational needs.

“It’s important that, as North East Lincolnshire grows, the number of good quality schools grows to meet the needs of our children and young people.”

Work is expected to start on the Scartho site soon. Proposals for the Waltham site will be tabled for further discussion at a future meeting of the Council’s Planning Committee.
