Non-statutory consultation on Expansion of Edgar Sewter Primary School

Find out how to leave feedback on this non-statutory consultation between 15 February - 8 March 2021.

Suffolk County Council (SCC) is consulting on a proposal to expand Edgar Sewter Primary School.  The proposal includes a new stand-alone block providing two classrooms, relocated library, WC’s and ancillary rooms.  Internal changes within the main school building will increase and improve staff and administration accommodation.  The proposed expansion increases capacity of the school from 315 pupils to 420 pupils, with the work completed and ready for September 2022.    

This non-statutory pre-application planning consultation will enable us to gather the views of local residents prior to the submission of the planning application. It does not affect the right to comment on the proposals during the statutory planning consultation process.
