As you may be aware, there is a planning application to expand Ecclesall Infant School on High Storrs Road.
The proposal would mean a substantial expansion of the school. The planning application, which can be seen here, includes:
● The expansion of the existing school and construction of two single storey extensions to make room for 15 extra classrooms and increase pupil numbers by 450 children.
● The construction of a ‘multi-unit games area’.
● An increase in car parking spaces to 57.
I know a lot of residents have some serious concerns about the proposals. The main issue being traffic. I know how congested it can get in the afternoon on High Storrs Road, Huntley Road, Edale Road and the surrounding area.
To help me try and get some answers from the council, I need to know what you think. Below is a survey that you can fill in and let me know your views.
I will keep you informed on any progress made.
Cllr. Shaffaq Mohammed
