The proposed community housing development between our primary site and the Nicholls shops has generated a very passionate response from the local community. Some of those views have been reported in the media, and some, incorrectly attributed to the P&C.
The P&C is committed to consulting widely within the school community and advocating in the collective best interests of our students.
In relation to the proposed development, the P&C has sought clarification on the proposed occupants of the 14 dwellings. We have also raised concerns over appropriate access to nearby services for the occupants; the adverse impact on traffic flow; whether the proposed development represents the optimum use of the site; and how the development may affect the school’s operations.
The P&C welcomes feedback from interested parents and will continue to liaise with relevant stakeholders.
