COME AND HAVE YOUR SAY ON TENBY SCHOOL PLANS

Plans to demolish Tenby's infant school and replace it with a new building on playing fields are up for discussion at an open public meeting next week.

Simon Hart MP has called the meeting because so many residents contacted him with concerns about the county council plans.

"I have heard from a number of Tenby residents that they are concerned about the plans for the new school and the lack of consultation about this major development. This is something that affects a lot of people, especially those who live nearby."

The council plans to build a new primary school next door to the existing junior school. The junior school would then become a Welsh medium junior school.

"I have invited both the National Park, who will be deciding the planning application, and the council - who is making the application - to send along representatives.

"I hope that they can answer questions about the cost of the development and whether it represents value for money for the tax payer as well as detailed queries about traffic management and loss of green space.

"If there is the demand for a Welsh medium school in Tenby then that is great news but I think the council needs to explain why it is spending so much money building an entirely new school instead of converting the existing junior or infants school or even using the former Pentlepoir school site."

*The meeting is taking place at the Heywood Mount Hotel at 7.30pm on Wednesday 23 July. All welcome but please register your interest by emailing christine.toy@parliament.uk
