The Corporate Director Education and Family Support presented a report informing Cabinet of the outcome of the published statutory notice in respect of the proposed enlargement of Mynydd Cynffig Primary School, as detailed in the Objection Report (Appendix A); seeking approval to publish the Objection Report, as prescribed by the School Organisation Code 2018 (Code); seeking approval to implement the proposal with effect from the beginning of the autumn term 2025; and seeking approval to issue and publish a decision letter, as prescribed by the Code.
The Corporate Director Education and Family Support outlined the background to the report. He then explained the current position and that following Cabinet approval on 8 February 2022, the consultation report was
published on the Council’s website and stakeholders were advised accordingly. The statutory public notice was published on 7 March 2022 for a period of 28 days and formal written objections were invited during this time. The Council received one email in respect of the proposal during the statutory notice period. Legal advice was sought and it was recommended to consider the correspondence as an objection to the proposal. An Objection Report was published summarising the objection and the local authority’s response to the objection. Cabinet would now need to consider the proposal in light of the objection. Cabinet could then accept, reject, or modify the proposal. The attached Objection Report (Appendix A to the report) set out the objection received and the local authority response.
The Cabinet member for Education thanked the officers for their hard work and added that this was an exciting project to bring a new school to the area. He hoped it would be delivered as quickly as possible. The objection had been dealt with and the allotments had been given a new home and stability for the future.
