Many of you will be aware of our ambitious plans to build a new Arden. This has been an evolving vision over the past four years and is linked to the need to build more houses in our local area due to both economic growth and a local and national housing shortage.
We are now moving into a critical stage since SMBC have identified the need to build 1000 more houses in our locality. We now firmly believe that we can engage with a forward thinking land swap deal and the very generous support from a local landowner where some 500 housing units will be built and a new £30M ‘state of the art’ school can be realised.
This is a chance in a lifetime opportunity to enhance our school and create opportunities and new community facilities for everyone young and old in the locality. We will need to work very closely together if we are going to create the very best for all.
