New Penyffordd Primary School for the Village

I have received the following comments on another post. I know not who commented nor do I need to know. The question is are these comments accurate?

Comment 1

"You might want to start asking questions about the plans for the new primary school in the village. Following the merger of the infants and juniors, a plan is in place to merge them on one site.....taking over the community garden, play area, children's park, allotments, caravan park and ....Millstone...all by compulsory purchase.

And our community councillors know do our county the council get to sell off two existing school sites, for housing no doubt, more greedy developers, rob the village of more community amenities and don't give the proverbial for what they are doing to our village"

Comment 2

"I've heard the same...outline planning permission to be put in soon, but the headmistress at the school has the plans!

The amount of money invested in the Millstone...people prepared to invest in a local business and will see it all taken away...all the homes on the caravan park....the time and money put in by allotment holders....with councillor support......more children's play space taken away...more development likely.....less and less care shown by our civil representatives....just look at how the voted for the new may councillors were missing from the vote....dereliction of duty...can't be bothered to turn up......or just pretend it isn't happening so i don't get tarred with voting for it"


  1. Such rumours are dangerous...there is no money in county to pay for a new school.....development could be years away. But it makes sense to plan for such an event. It is not logical or efficient to have two school sites in the village and if you are a parent with children at each its a logistical nightmare

    1. Thank for your comment. I agree with most of what you say. With regards rumours, our village leaders need to make a formal comment. The scenario outlined above is highly unsettling and stressful for those potentially affected. Whilst I understand the need for amalgamation I cannot believe the above scenario is being considered.

  2. Read the minutes of the special community council on 15th identifies all possible sites in the village for development and change of use...including the school sites for housing! Plus the Spar...for housing........

    1. Many thanks for the help. A quick look on the community council website shows nothing, no minutes or agenda. Nothing much changes with regards Penyffordd Community Council website. I can feel an email coming on.

  3. under Community council tab they are there...LDP Special Meeting - 15th April

    1. Yes as you say, I clicked on link and nothing turned up, perhaps silly me.
