New build and development project
Seven Stars primary school has been a key part of the Leyland community for over 50 years serving several generations of pupils and their families. However, our school building has needed increasing investment from our school and Local Authority budgets in order to maintain its fabric, structure and its effectiveness in meeting modern educational requirements.
The Department of Education is currently preparing a full planning application that includes the demolition of all existing buildings and the erection of a new part-2 storey, part-single storey primary school. The plans also include parking, landscaping, a new multi use games area. During the construction phase the school will remain operational and as such the planning application will also include the temporary provision of portacabin classrooms on site.
The capacity of the new school will not significantly increase from the existing pupil numbers. The floorplans available to view below provide further details of the proposed 10 classrooms.
The proposals allow for dedicated staff parking, cycle parking, and a separate entrance/drop off area for children with special education needs and disabilities.
The school will be one of the first 50 net carbon zero schools to be built by the Department for Education, with a focus on energy efficiency alongside the use of air source heat pumps and natural ventilation.
It is intended that construction will commence in 2023 with the new school being fully operational from September 2024. The planning application submission will include a Construction Management Plan prepared by the contractor which will set out how Conlon Construction will manage the site, the working hours and measures to minimise any impact to local residents and the local environment during the build.
During November leaflets were distributed to around 3,000 households in the local area which included information on the proposals and how to view further details on this webpage along with an email address for those who wish to provide comments.
Below you will find links to download various plans which further illustrate the proposals, this includes existing and proposed site plans, proposed floor plans for the school building, and the proposed elevations together with a street scene illustrating what the new school will look like from Peacock Hall Lane.
We hope that the local community can support this development which seeks to improve the learning environment for our children and we want to hear from local residents with any comments or queries about the proposed development. Please send any comments you may have before 5th December 2022. Comments can be made by email to email@example.com
All feedback from the local community will be considered by the appointed consultant team and this will inform the final planning application submission.
