Colwinston Community Council

St David's School

April 2022 - After considerable toing and froing with the VoGC they have completed the pavement and road changes to improve safety outside the school. There are a few important issues still to resolve including the intrusive car park lighting and others being dealt with by the governers.

March 2021 - The petition raised 268 signatures. It has been presented to WPD and the VoGC. The matter is still not resolved and we are still making efforts to improve the layout outside of the school.

Feb 2021 - The CCC are raising a petition to change the road layout outside of the school before the new school opens in September. The layout proposed by VOGC is not the safest outcome. The CCC contend that the Western Power substation was put in the wrong place, not taking account of the safety of people around the school. If you haven't been asked to sign the petition please email and you will be sent an email to respond to.

The proposed layout is in the library as is the new site layout plan.

September 2020 - VOGC have approved theplanning application to build the new school. It had been delayed because of revised consultaion procedures and they are finalising outstanding issues.  There are two issues that the Comunity Council are pursuing:

1. The unsightly substation ouside the school. This has been discussed a number of times with VOGC and a site meeting is planned in the near future. We are hopeful we can make it safer and less obtrusive.

2, The potential increase in traffic through the village. Again this will be a subject of the site meeting.
