Christ's School Remodelling and Extension - pre planning consultation 2010
This consultation is now closed.
Purpose of consultation
The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames is seeking to improve accommodation for special educational needs and provide enhanced curriculum facilities for 14 - 19 year olds pupils at secondary schools in the borough.
The Council has appointed Pick Everard to develop proposals for Christ's School that will involve the remodelling and extension of the current buildings. Pick Everard has been working closely with the school, governors and Diocese to develop the design which is nearing the point where a planning application will be submitted. Views on the proposed plans are being sought prior to submitting a planning application.
A consultation event was held on Wednesday 30 June 2010 at Christ's School, 3.30pm - 8pm to give parents and the local community the opportunity to view the design drawings on display, along with further information about the project. The architect was also available to answer questions. Invitation letters were sent to residents prior to the event.

Results and Outcomes
There were six visitors at this event. The building proposals were presented and comments were invited from parents and local residents. The proposals are being developed to improve accommodation for special educational needs and provide enhanced curriculum facilities for 14 - 19 year old pupils - it was noted that the plans are not to provide for the addition of a sixth form to the schools, but to enhance facilities for current students.
Generally the feedback was positive, with the designs being well received.
What has happened as a result?
Comments have been fed back to the architects and formal consultation will take place through the planning application process.
