View Putney school plans
Published: Thursday 23rd February 12
The plans of the new Putney primary school on the Putney Hospital site can now be viewed online.
To view the plans search the planning applications database. Enter the application number 2012/0758.
The sale of the hospital site has now been completed, and ownership handed over from NHS Wandsworth to the council.
The council has also entered into an agreement with the Commons Conservators to allow access across the common, and for common land to be used during demolition and construction work. A piece of land in Stag Lane will be sold to the conservators to make up for it.
The school will be an academy, which means that it will be independent of local authority control. It will provide 420 primary places from 2015 for children living in the west of the borough.
The scheme also includes 24 flats at the northern end of the site for which planning permission was obtained in July 2010. Proceeds from the sale of the flats will help pay for the school.
Putney Hospital, which is situated on the eastern edge of Putney Common, closed services to patients in 1998. It has remained vacant ever since.
View details of the school scheme at an exhibition at All Saints Church, Putney Common on Monday, March 19 from 3pm to 7pm. Representatives of the council and the architect will be on hand to answer questions.
