New school plans are sub­mit­ted to coun­cil

South Wales Echo - - NEWS -

THIS is how Bute­town’s new pri­mary school could look.

A new, two-storey pri­mary school is planned for land near the Ha­madryad Cen­tre, Ha­madryad Road, Bute­town.

The plans in­clude chang­ing rooms, a sprin­kler tank and pump house as well as ex­ter­nal light­ing and play­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

Plans have been sub­mit­ted to Cardiff coun­cil by de­vel­oper Stride Tre­glown on be­half of the author­ity.

The pro­posal is for a 420-space Welsh medium pri­mary school with 48 nurs­ery spa­ces for morn­ing and af­ter­noon ses­sions within a new build­ing south of the ex­ist­ing NHS fa­cil­ity on Ha­madryad Road.

The school would em­ploy 50 staff, of which 20 would be teach­ers, 16 would be teach­ing as­sis­tants and 14 would be an­cil­lary staff.

Break­fast and af­ter-school clubs are likely to be avail­able.

Early years pupils are cur­rently oc­cu­py­ing part of the Ninian Park School, Sloper Road, to the north west of the site.

Ve­hi­cle ac­cess to the school would be along the Ha­madryad Road via the Ha­madryad Cen­tre car park.

Pedes­trian ac­cess would be from Ha­madryad Road with a foot­path lead­ing to the door of the school.

There would be 23 staff park­ing spa­ces and two dis­abled park­ing spa­ces. No par­ents would be al­lowed to park in the school grounds.

The coun­cil has sug­gested changes to lo­cal streets to stop peo­ple park­ing on streets near the school.

They are pedes­trian cross­ing fa­cil­i­ties at the junc­tion of Dum­balls Road, James Street, Clarence Road, Hunter Street or al­ter­na­tive cross­ing fa­cil­i­ties on Dum­balls Road and Hunter Street.

There could also be changes to Cor­po­ra­tion Road and traffic calm­ing on Avon­dale Road.

There was a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion about the scheme and two res­i­dents raised con­cerns.

They in­cluded the im­pact of con­struc­tion on ex­ist­ing houses, park­ing and traffic in­creases and the suit­abil­ity of the ac­cess road as it is nar­row and can only ac­com­mo­date one car.
