13th November 2017- New Site Update
Following consent to the planning application for our new school building and facilities at West Blatchington, by BHCC and the Secretary of State, progress is being made on the discharge of the “pre-start on site” Planning Conditions. The contract with Kier Construction and agreement with RET is being finalised so that enabling works can commence on site before Christmas. Work on our new school build is expected to start in earnest towards the end of January 2018 and will continue until completion of all works; both new buildings and external areas, by 5 August 2019. Although the overall programme duration has not changed, the start on site is later than envisaged. Careful monitoring of the programme once on site will occur to ensure the end date of August 2019 is met. Nevertheless, by taking possession of our new premises over the summer holidays 2019, the move from our current site will be easier than if the school had been in session. In line with planning requirements, we have begun discussions with local bus service providers to extend existing popular routes to West Blatchington, in readiness for our move.
We will keep you updated in the coming months as work proceeds. In the meantime if you have any questions then please contact us via email@example.com
