Bannerdale School site
Most people anywhere near Carter Knowle Road will already be well aware that work has started to prepare the site for the new school. Piles are being driven into the ground in the area which was formerly a waste tip on top of which a solid platform will be constructed to act as the base for the new school. 
There is still some anxiety about the release of gases from the site once the building is completed although assurances have been given that these have been addressed. 
Our friends in the Carter Knowle & Millhouses Community Group are keeping the closest eye on this development. If you have any observations or comments or questions about it, please contact them directly by emailing the Secretary, Mike Hodson, on:
To see how extensive the works are a video has been put online showing aerial views of the site. It can be found at:
