Plans for new crèche building at Chirk primary school unanimously supported
The plan to create a new kindergarten building in a local primary school was unanimously supported by the councilors.
It comes after an application was submitted in April for a new specially designed classroom for preschoolers at Ysgol y Waun in Chirk.
The development includes a modular building, which will accommodate two nursery classes – one for Welsh speakers and one for English speakers.
Speaking at a planning meeting on Monday night, planning officer Matthew Phillips said: erected in place on a concrete pad.
“As the elevations demonstrate that they are of a much higher quality and structure than is traditionally the case with mobile units,
“It’s in a relatively prominent place in the site but nonetheless it will be seen in the context of the school and it is not inappropriate in terms of appearance, size or in the context of the street scene anymore. large.
“The site is in the World Heritage buffer zone, but what I would say here is that it is outside the conservation area, so it is not in the Chirk conservation area. In terms of the wider impact on the World Heritage site, it is again considered in the context of existing developments.
“It has no impact on the setting or the impression people would have of visiting the area.”
Commenting on the plans, local councilor Frank Hemmings said the new classroom would improve upon the current layout.
He said, “What happens at certain times of the day is that you will see the children crossing the road from one to the other.
“So it brings everything together, the two groups, the two structures, the nursery and the little ones. They will be in the same building divided in two, one side of the other.
“It will be just fantastic to bring us into the next generation with child care. “
The request was unanimously supported by the members of the planning committee.
