Moreton Hall SEMH School pre-application planning consultation

Our consultation on a proposal to open a SEMH School in Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds closed on Friday 8 May 2020.

This consultation has now closed.

Suffolk County Council consulted on a proposal to open a new special school for students with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs in Airfield Road, Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds. The new school facility will accommodate 80 students aged 9 to 16. The school is part of Suffolk County Council's commitment to increase Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) capacity throughout the county. The school is planned to open in January 2022.

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