Dundonald Primary School

Following decisions by the council's Cabinet on 9 December 2013, all four required legal processes to allow the expansion of Dundonald Primary School from September 2015 have now been agreed.  The details of the two recent processes that have been subject to consultation are detailed below.

Dundonald Primary School expansion - statutory notice under Education Law

Following the consultation, on 31 October 2013 the council published a notice under section 19(1) of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to permanently expand Dundonald Primary School from 210 to 420 places. The period of representation has now closed.   See here for the published notice (0.4MB).  On 9 December 2013 the council's Cabinet approved the expansion.  See here for the Council's Cabinet report

Dundonald Recreation Ground and Primary School Land appropriation

On 3 October 2013 the council published a notice under section 122 of the Local Government Act of its intentions to appropriate for the purposes of the enlargement of the Dundonald Primary School, and for additional facilities for the sole or shared benefit of that school, an area of land forming part of the Dundonald Recreation Ground, which includes land used as open space.

The representation period has now closed. The notice and the related plans can be viewed here: Notice & plans (3.4MB).

See here for the Council's Cabinet report on making a decision on this proposal, which confirms the area of appropriation, and that the tennis courts and pavilion area, while part of the appropriation area, will remain under the control of the Greenspaces team but the school will have exclusive use at set times as set out in a Community Use Agreement that is underpinned by a Unilateral Undertaking

Further background material on the expansion of Dundonald Primary School including copies of each individual representation to the land appropriation and the Statutory Notice under Education Law can be found on the Dundonald link below.
