Full plans are now available for the redevelopment of Dashwood School. You can view some of these by visiting this link and entering search term 11/00683/F in the Application Case Reference box at the top. If you select the application and then view the associated documents, you’ll find revised layout 2 which is a floorplan detailing how Paradigm Housing plans to repurpose the building.

A new planning notice has also just appeared on the Dashwood Road side of the school, outlining amendments to the original planning appication. The new application mentions:

  • removing new link building containing staircase
  • converting the infant school building into houses rather than flats
  • alterations to door and window openings.

The council produced this planning guidance document in January 2007 which details how the building, its boundaries and existing hedgerows and trees must be treated, particularly since the school falls inside the conservation area.

It’s great news that redevelopment is still going ahead, but any concerns about the plans should be addressed to [email protected] The date of the new planning notice is 26 May 2011 (even though that date has not yet arrived), and it asks for comments by three weeks after this date, which is 16 June 2011.
