Proposals have been developed by PSG and its preferred contractor, Pave Aways Ltd, to enhance primary school provision at Haughmond Federation, and we would like to know what you think.

Shropshire Council is investing £8.44million to create a new flagship facility in Featherbed Lane, which will allow Sundorne Infant School and Nursery to move from its existing home on Corndon Crescent and relocate on to the same site as Harlescott Junior School, enabling the Haughmond Federation to consolidate its infant and junior provision on a single site. Both schools will also increase in size to meet local demand for additional primary school places.

The development has been designed to have minimum impact on the surrounding neighbourhood, while also considering the environmental impact to Shropshire and the teaching environment for the teachers and pupils.

The development comprises a new multi-purpose hall, a new kitchen, associated office accommodation for both Harlescott Junior School and Sundorne Infant School and Nursery, toilets and storage rooms, internal remodelling and associated external works.

Works will commence early 2021.

Public Consultation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can only consult at a distance, so the proposals will be available to view online from today until Wednesday 7 October. All of the information is available to view, download and print below.

The consultation will allow the council, the school and the design team to understand any concerns people may have, and to hear your views. The planning application will be lodged in mid-October; Shropshire Council will then hold a statutory planning consultation so you will have another chance to have your say then.
