Shelter approved for school
7:00am Saturday 8th September 2012 in News
ABBOTTS Hall Primary School, in Stanford-le-Hope, has been given the green light to put up a new shelter for outdoor lessons and a steel framed shelter for parents waiting to pick their children up.
One letter of objection was received from a resident, who feared the shelters would attract anti-social behaviour and create noise disturbance.
The concern was shared by Thurrock Council planning committee chairman Terry Hipsey, who feared the shelter may fall victim to vandalism.
The committee approved the application, but resolved to advise the school to put low level lighting on the shelter so it can be clearly seen after dark.
