Why your views matter

Essex County Council (ECC) with the Department for Education (DfE), are proposing to replace the RL’s at Friars Grove Primary School to provide a permanent Early Years facility and a school class base.

The proposed replacement includes the construction a new Early Year’s facility at the front of the school site consisting of 2x play spaces, kitchen, staff room, admin/reception area, stores, laundry and associated w/c’s and plant with a new 6 space car park externally. A new class base on the school playing field is also proposed consisting of 1x class base, store and associated w/c’s. The current RL’s will be demolished and the area will be reinstated back to grass play space.

Please see planning boards at the bottom of the webpage.
