Update: Castlebrook High School planning application submitted

I recently attended the consultation event held at Castlebrook High School where the plans for a rebuild of the new school were showcased. The Shaw Education Trust have now submitted their planning application to Bury Council and the plans can be viewed by following the link below. I would be interested to hear what local residents, pupils and parents/carers of pupils think of the new plans.

One thing to note: It is proposed to build the new school on land that is currently designated as green belt. This may well have massive implications for building on green belt across Unsworth (and the rest of Bury) if passed. There is no doubt that Castlebrook High is an old school, built in 1970, however are these the right plans for Unsworth secondary school children? Please let me know what you think.
