The group behind the controversial plans to build a new school in Beckenham is inviting the community to attend a public consultation to hear more about the plans and discuss their concerns.
As we reported last month, those living close to the proposed site for the new Beckenham Academy on Balmoral Avenue were angered when the land was cleared before planning permission had been agreed.
E21C, the Multi-Academy Trust that plans to open the school, will host the consultation meeting on Tuesday 9th March. At the consultation, residents will hear updates on the planning process and will have an opportunity to share their views on the plans. The public meeting will be held at St George’s Church Hall, Albermarle Road, from 6:45pm, and area residents who want to learn more are welcome to attend.
Members of the development team will be available to take any questions, and E21C will take on board any feedback from the community when developing the ongoing proposals. E21C CEO Paul Murphy said: “This meeting will be an opportunity for all members of the community to hear an update on the plans and how the planning application process is coming along.”
Bromley Council anticipates a growing demand for school places by 2020, and E21C believes that the new Beckenham Academy will help with this demand and lessen its impact on other local schools.
Do you support the plans for the new school, or do you believe there is a better alternative?
