Arborfield Secondary School
dha has secured full planning permission for the development of a 1500 place Secondary School within the Arborfield Garrison Strategic Development Location.
dha planning worked with Wokingham Borough Council and Faithful & Gould to secure full planning permission for the development of a 1500 place Secondary School within the Arborfield Garrison Strategic Development Location, approximately 4km south west of Wokingham town centre. Associated facilities include a new Sports Centre, external sports facilities including a 3G Sports Pitch, hard and soft landscaping, parking provision and access.
The application was subject to significant liaison with Planning Officers from Wokingham Borough Council, and as well as collating and submitting the planning application, dha planning also co-ordinated the applicant’s responses on various issues including landscaping, access, flood risk, contamination, archaeology and technical aspects of the design. The application was reported to Wokingham Borough Council Planning Committee on 25th March 2015 where Members unanimously voted to grant approval.
The school, which will cater for up to 1500 people, will be built in three phases, the first of which will be ready for September 2016, in time for the first intake of 210 Year 7 pupils. Phase two will complete the rest of the school and sports facilities by September 2017, increasing the capacity to 1200 and phase three will provide an additional 300 places.
