Are there provisions to provide additional educational capacity i.e. schools to accommodate the children in the proposed development either by building a new school(s) or funding to expand the existing infrastructure? For example: Woodland View Primary School is oversubscribed at the moment and some children who live in Grange Park could not get placements, adding children from the proposed development of 300 or more households would lead to overcrowding at school, overworked teachers and additional pressure on already stretched finite resources. In addition, building over this land will inadvertently lead to the destruction of the natural ecosystem of several animal species and birds that currently thrive in their natural habitat. These prospects point to a bleak and dismal future.
