16 Outcomes of Statutory Consultation for the Proposed Prescribed Alterations at Halling Primary School pdf icon PDF 219 KB




This report provided details of the outcomes of the formal consultation (statutory representation) period on the Council’s proposal to enlarge the premises at Halling Primary School, by way of statutory prescribed alteration. The Cabinet had previously authorised (4 April 2017) the Director of Children and Adults Services to commence the formal consultation stage of the statutory process. This took place over a four-week period between 13 November and 10 December 2017, details of which were set out in section 4 of the report.


The report stated that there had been one response to the formal consultation. This had raised concerns about the impact of the expansion on other schools in the area. This was addressed in paragraph 5.10 of the report.

A Diversity Impact Assessment had been undertaken on the proposals, as set out in Appendix 1 to the report.


Decision number:



The Cabinet noted the responses to the formal and informal consultations, together with the advice and analysis from officers and approved the proposal for the enlargement of the Premises at Halling Primary School to provide adequate accommodation for the additional children who will attend the school as a result of an increase in the Published Admission number (PAN) from 40 to 60 for implementation from 1 September 2018.




Where an objection has been made during formal consultation to the proposals for prescribed alterations to a School, the Cabinet must consider the objection(s) and decide whether to approve the proposals.


Approval to proceed with the proposals would ensure that the Council meets its statutory duty to provide sufficient school places.
