Public Meeting re Bannerdale development   9 February, St. Oswald’s Church, 6.30-8.30pm

The Bannerdale site off Carter Knowle Road is proposed to be developed within the next year or two to hold a new school and housing development and at the same time still to provide access to the general public as a community open space.

Some have expressed concerns about this development, not least about the intensive use of the space but also about the future viability of the new 11 to 18 school.

Parents of children currently in primary schools along the Abbeydale corridor and around Banner Cross will be interested to know from where the new school will draw its pupil intake while residents in the Bannerdale area who will be affected by the development will wish to see what it means for them.
