Elmswell Primary School expansion to 420 places pre-application planning consultation

Our pre-application planning consultation on a proposal to expand Elmswell Primary School to 420 places closed on Tuesday 27 April 2021.

This consultation has now closed.

Suffolk County Council (SCC) is consulting on a proposal to expand Elmswell Community Primary School.  The proposal includes a three classroom extension and studio to the existing stand-alone block, and extension of the main school to increase staff, administration and kitchen accommodation.  External changes include re-provision of hard play area, an all-weather pitch and improved pedestrian access and parking.  The proposed expansion increases capacity from 315 pupils to 420 pupils, scheduled for September 2022.

This non-statutory pre-application planning consultation will enable us to gather the views of parents and 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.
