First look at Honiton Primary School expansion plans
PUBLISHED: 17:19 24 May 2018
Plans to build a new single storey foundation stage unit building at Honiton Primary School have been submitted to county planners.
It comes after the Herald revealed the school was in line for a £2.7 million windfall to expand its facilities, raising pupil capacity to 630.
According to the application, the proposed building’s walls will be built from vertical planed Siberian Larch timber cladding, with a grey coloured metal standing seam roof covering system.
Around £1.2million for the project has been identified in the council’s capital programme, with much of the remaining £1.5million met from a Section 106 agreement regarding Baker Estates’ Hayne Lane development.
Devon County Council confirmed work on the expansion is planned to start in autumn, to be ready by September 2019.
A proposal regarding Honiton Primary School’s expansion is set to be taken to Devon County Council’s cabinet meeting next month.
