RESIDENTS had the chance to raise concerns when a scale model and artist’s impression of the multi-million-pound development of Sir John Deane’s College were put on show at a public consultation evening.
Proposals include demolishing existing temporary classrooms including the dance studio and art blocks, and replacing them with purpose- built ‘departmental clusters’.
The historic original Main Hall would remain to ensure the proposed facilities would add to the legacy of period architecture.
College principal Andrew Jones said the feedback from the consultation evening was very positive.
“The only concern expressed by residents was that the plans needed to ensure that more student parking spaces be included on site – which is a point we have already discussed with the planning authorities.
“We would like to thank everyone for their comments, which will help to ensure the proposals are of benefit to the college and wider community.”
The college will now submit a detailed planning application to Vale Royal Borough Council’s Planning Department for consideration.
