Planning application submitted for Barking Riverside all-through school
RENEW Planning has been instructed in conjunction with Portakabin Group and Surface to Air Architects to submit a planning application for an all-through school (Riverside School) at Barking Riverside in East London. The school will take the form of a single, integrated learning campus comprising a 10 form entry secondary school (with sixth form), 3 form entry primary school, special education needs (SEN) school and nursery with associated informal areas of play, including Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAS) and an all-weather pitch. The overall child and staff population of the school will be in the region of 3,000. The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham has one of the fastest growing school age populations in the country and the school will meet an identified need for new education infrastructure in the area. The planning application is expected to be determined in the summer.

This follows our advice to the applicant that the considerable cost of submitting a planning application could be avoided by adopting such an approach.
