The Clerk noted that she had been informed by Ward Councillor Mrs J. Beaumont, that there is some positive movement on the removal of the overhead power lines and S.B.C. architect is currently dealing with the Electricity Board on the matter, with regard to timescales etc.  It was also confirmed that the archaeological dig is now complete.

 

The residents attending the meeting were given the opportunity to express any concerns they have regarding the revised site layout.

 

Concerns were raised from the occupants of the Old Mill on Barwick Lane, with regard to the lack of a foul drainage connection to their property, which they hope can be linked in with the development of this site.  The residents also noted that vehicular access to their property is from Barwick Lane and therefore the road safety aspect needs looking at with regard to children on foot using the Lane to get to the new school.

Also, the section of Barwick Lane adjacent to the school has no street lights at present and is very dark, which raises safety concerns.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk send a letter to Northumbrian Water and S.B.C., supporting the request from the occupants of the Old Mill, to link in their drainage with the school development.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk send a letter to S.B.C. requesting that consideration be given to providing street lights along the section of Barwick Lane adjacent to the proposed school site.

 

Concerns were raised with regard to the position of the access road into the site, which still runs adjacent to the nearby properties.  Also, the type of material the roof is to be constructed of, which may reflect the light.

 

It was noted that the position of the footpath within the site has been altered on the new plan.

 

It was reiterated that removal of the overhead power lines would enable relocation of the school building within the site and hence give more flexibility to the location of the access road into the site, car parking and playing fields.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk send a letter to S.B.C. reiterating the importance of the removal of the overhead power lines to enable the site layout to be modified and take account of the concerns raised by residents living in the vicinity of the site.  Consultation with the Parish Council and public is essential to ensure that a favourable site layout can be agreed.
