Consultation for Wickford PRU

Closed 30 Apr 2020

Opened 16 Apr 2020


Invitation to review an Online Public Exhibition relating to the proposed new Wickford Pupil Referral Unit, Alderney Gardens, Wickford.

Why We Are Consulting

Essex County Council (ECC), as the Education Authority, proposes to provide new build accomodation for a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) on the Wickford Centre site, Alderney Gardens, Wickford.  This project will inlcude the demolition of the existing building to provide brand new accommodation and facilities for pupils attending the PRU. The ECC project design team has been working with the Childrens Support Service (CSS) to develop a proposal that would meet the school’s educational need and fits well on the site.

Please see attached planning boards at the bottom of the webpage.

We would like to invite you to an online exhibition to review the latest draft proposals online and to have your say before the proposals are completed for submission to the County Planning Authority as a full planning application. Comment forms are available online and we would be grateful if you could take your time to complete this so that we can capture and consider the views prior to the submission of the planning application.

What Happens Next
