Lewisham Bridge School planning application

The planning application for a new school near Lewisham town centre has been submitted to Lewisham Council. The document describes the project as:

"The redevelopment of Lewisham Bridge Primary School, Elmira Street SE13, to provide a part three/part four storey all-age school (ages 3 -16 years) and a two-storey sports hall, together with landscaping including play areas, provision of 96 cycle spaces and 16 parking spaces."

Over at Green Ladywell, Cllr Sue Luxton has written a brilliant summation of the issues the application raises, the most important of which is that Lewisham desperately needs a new secondary school, to reduce the number of kids which are forced to travel outside the borough to get an education.
