Green Belt car park plan to ease traffic congestion at primary school


PLANNING permission is being sought to create additional car parking on Green Belt land at St Wilfrids CofE Primary School, Grapenhall to help ease traffic congestion.

The aim is to provide additional car parking for staff and parents with a proposed new car park area and footpath and new paladin fencing and gate.

Tree works would require the removal of four oak trees and the crowning of six sycamores and three holly trees on the application site lies which North West of the School to the rear of an existing pub car park.

The principle of the development is to form the car park in a permeable mesh grid to provide as little an impact as possible to an existing grassed area, to form an eco-friendly parking area with a suitable lighted path to the rear of the school.
The aim is to provide secure additional parking for the school without impact on any existing surroundings while providing significant assistance during the
congested periods for the school during opening and closing times for the pupils and parents.
The proposed external development would have no visual impact on the nearby listed buildings or other green belt assets.

The application is to be considered by Warrington Borough Council planners under delegated powers.
