Our Lady Of Grace school has another go at rebuilding – have your say on Highcombe plan

Our Lady Of Grace school on Charlton Road has submitted a revised planning application for a ‘two form entry primary school‘, to be built on the long-disused playing field off Highcombe, below their current premises. The key difference from their previous – rejected – application, appears to be that the main entrance to the school would be from Highcombe, rather than Lime Kiln Drive (though the cul-de-sac would still house a service entrance and emergency exit). Charlton Community Gardens have raised concerns about the loss of land that has been designated Community Open Space in the council’s local plan. There’s an open meeting at Blackheath Rugby Club to discuss the plans on Monday 22nd June, starting 7pm with a presentation of the plans. The latest plans and documentation can be found on the council’s planning portal: search for application 15/1225/F, or “Highcombe”.

    Absolutely ridiculous… Why don’t they move into the old Blackheath Blue Coats School… only 35% of children from the catchment area actually attend, so I’d suggest these probably no need to double the size. I could say so much more but I’ll wait for Monday…
