Oakley Grove all through school planning application public consultation event

Warwickshire County Council and its appointed contractor, Willmott Dixon Construction, have announced a public consultation drop-in event to display the emerging plans for the proposed new All Through School at Oakley Grove, Leamington which is shortly to be submitted for planning approval.

Oakley Grove School will provide education provision for children aged three to sixteen with a 6th Form also planned in the longer term. It is the biggest and most expensive school the County Council has ever commissioned and is currently anticipated to open in phases starting from September 2024.

The principle of the development and the access off Oakley Wood Road has already been approved through an outline planning permission granted by Warwick District Council on 1 June 2020 (ref: W/19/1030).  This consultation will therefore focus on the detailed design of the buildings and the site layout which will be the subject of a forthcoming ‘Reserved Matters’ planning application.

The details of the consultation event are as follows:

Venue: Heathcote Primary School, Vickers Way, Warwick, VC34 7AP

Date:  Tuesday 5th July 2022

Time: 3.45pm – 8.00pm

The public consultation event is designed to provide local residents, and parents of children who might attend the school in future, with an opportunity to drop in and review the draft plans.  Comment forms will be available to provide feedback.  Representatives from the County Council, Willmott Dixon Construction and the planning and design team will be on hand to answer any questions.
