Putney school exhibition next week

Published: Tuesday 13th March 12

An exhibition will be held next Monday (March 19) to enable local people to view plans for the new primary school proposed for the Putney Hospital site on Putney Common.

Putney Hospital schoolThe 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.

A school "independent of local authority control" but who will control it and whose money is being spent? Why doesn't WBC share that information with its local tax payers? Why not also make the exhibition more readily available by putting it in the Civic Centre too? Our money is being used already so I hope the council shares some of that information on the one day it is accountable via this "exhibition". It must cost to set it up so why only one day?
