Plans for the proposed new Saddleworth School on the site of the former WH Shaw Pallet site works in Diggle have been revealed – with the public asked to give their views during a four week public consultation period.
The construction company, Interserve Construction Ltd, have been appointed to design and build the new school and will be hosting a series of public exhibitions which the public can attend, view the proposals, discuss them with members of the project team and provide their written feedback.
The details of the exhibitions are as follows:
· Weds 3 June 15.30-19.30 Satellite Centre, Wellington Road, Greenfield, Oldham, OL3 7AL
· Mon 8 June 15.30-19.30 St Chad’s Church, Lee Side, Kiln Green, Diggle, OL3 5JY
· Thurs 11 June 16.00-19.30 Saddleworth School, High Street, Uppermill, Oldham OL3 6BU
Oldham Council will also be at these events presenting a series of options under consideration for local highway upgrade works that are to facilitate the operation of the new school.
Alongside these exhibitions, a dedicated website (www.newsaddleworthschool.co.uk) has been established which provides the same information as will be available at the exhibitions. An online feedback facility is also available.
All feedback received will be reviewed and, where the project team feel that amendments could and should be made to respond to comments received, such changes will be incorporated into the design.
The public consultation period will run from Tuesday May 26 to Tuesday June 23.
The development of the new high school provides an exciting opportunity to build a facility that is
able to meet and exceed the needs of modern education provision, allowing Saddleworth School to enhance its educational offer and to develop its ambition to provide the best standards of attainment.
