Approve Planning for Harpenden Free School at Victoria Road, Harpenden

This petition made change with 252 supporters!

Harpenden Free School is nearing the end of it's first amazing (and challenging) year in the fantastic environment of the Tithe Barn. From next September, the size of the school will dramatically increase, which while demonstrating the success and obvious desire from parents (and children!) for this school, will bring the school to the limits of its current buildings.

  From September 2014, the new planned site at Victoria Road in Harpenden will become the schools residence, and a beautiful Victorian building, once a school, then a library, and now sorely needing restoration will be revived and turned into a very carefully designed, and inspiring location for the education and inspiration of our young pupils.   However, a number of objections have been raised against the development, which have the potential to threaten the approval of the planning permission required for the site. The school governers and consultants on this project have invested a huge amount of time ensuring that every detail (and beyond) of the plans and the objections have been addressed, and these will be presented to the planning committee at the next meeting on Monday 24th June (where we hope for approval!)   However, we can never underestimate the power of public opinion and support for this amazing project, so please sign the petition, and share it to your friends, family, and other interested parties, especially those that are within the Harpenden area and believe in what this development means to the school, to the children, and to the whole of Harpenden.   • Harpenden has a recognised shortage for additional primary school places.   • Harpenden Free School has provied in its first year of operation that it provides an • exception child focussed curriculum within a caring and highly focussed setting.   • The imaginative new school plans endorse this vision.   • Detailed plans for the Victoria Road site bring to life a beautiful building in Harpenden town centre. It will provide a rich resource for the whole community through sharing its provisions and facilities.
