‘I welcome the news about our new school and pay tribute to everyone in the community who fought for its building.’ Andrew Williams, Labour Party Candidate for Bishop's Cleeve
The announcement of a new primary school for Bishop’s Cleeve is welcomed by Tewkesbury Labour. We also welcome the announcement this new school will be carbon neutral.
But why does the press release state this school is being built for future need and based on the building of more housing? The people of Bishop’s Cleeve know this new primary school has been needed for several years and it is regrettable it will not open until 2023.
Time and again, throughout Gloucestershire, new houses are built without the accompanying services and infrastructure. Schools, community buildings and medical centres built too late, or not at all, negatively impacting our quality of life.
TORY run councils are letting us down.
Bishop’s Cleeve now faces the potential controversy and fall out of arguing over the location of our new school. All because there was not a location earmarked years ago.
‘I welcome the news about our new school and pay tribute to everyone in the community who fought for its building.’
‘I support the principle it is built adjacent to our newest developments. However, it is vital the location is sensible and that access routes to the school do not become twice daily car parks – Labour will challenge proposals detrimental to residents quality of life.’
Tewkesbury Labour Party , we want developers to meet their commitments to communities, we want affordable homes to be built to the highest energy standards, and we want younger residents and families to put down roots and make their homes in Gloucestershire.
Tewkesbury Labour has NO confidence our Tory councillors will deliver a timely infrastructure and services plan to accompany the massive new building developments planned across Tewkesbury, Brockworth, Hignham and Ashchurch – do you?
