News: New schools set to become heart of proposed Waverley community


Two new primary schools will be built as part of a brand new community in Rotherham, if plans for the development of the Waverley site get the go-ahead. A report by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) supports UK COAL's provision for the new schools as part of the proposed 20-year development of the former Orgreave coke works site. UK COAL will also provide funding for the expansion of existing school facilities if the need arises. For example, if the schools reach capacity then UK COAL will make payments to upgrade both primary and secondary schools to take the additional pupils. John Dunshea, of Atisreal, the planning consultants working on behalf of UK COAL, said: "A primary focus for Waverley will be schools and they are at the heart of any community. "They will be phased in over a 20-year period when the surpluses at nearby schools near capacity. At the moment we have the surpluses to deal comfortably with it and the report confirms that."
