Hounsdown School Gets The Planning Nod

Hounsdown School

I was delighted, today, to propose a motion for approval of a planning permission submitted by Hounsdown School for a new teaching block.

The headteacher, Mrs Turvey, addressed the planning committee at New Forest District Council, telling us that it had taken four years to organise the design and secure the necessary funding.

The school has been very successful and wishes to cater for more children with special educational needs, including autism.

In proposing “support” for approval, I reminded members that we had in the past seen Totton College secure funding for building work, only for government to withdraw the necessary money before work could be started.

To my relief, the motion was supported by all other Councillors and approval has been given.

Today was a major hurdle, but the right result.

Permission will result in no overall loss of playing fields green space. Let’s hope all now goes smoothly with the funding and the construction!

The question I pose today… What is the link between a flock of lapwings and a group of politicians?
