‘Just push ahead with school expansion as we planned’

PLANS to expand a school by 195 pupils are back on the drawing board despite more than 240 objections to the proposals.

Herts County Council put the plans for Greenway First & Nursery School in Crossways, Berkhamsted, to public consultation in January and February this year.

It suggested pupil numbers are increased by 30 per year group from September 2012.

It wants to do the same at Westfield First School in Durrants Lane, Berkhamsted, from September this year.

There was mass opposition to the Greenway plans, and the school board of governors described the plans as “flawed”.

But in a report to the county council cabinet, planning manager Pauline Davis suggests it should push ahead with plans regardless.
