QUADRING PARISH COUNCIL: School governor's plea for village to be 'in the know' on opportunities for community cash from new developments




A Quadring school governor has urged parish councillors to "make sure we're in the know" about opportunities to bring cash into the village.

Jaze Iszatt, chairman of governors at Quadring Brown's and Cowley Primary School, made the comment at Monday's parish council meeting just a day before a formal plan for future development across South Holland was finally adopted.

The South East Lincolnshire Local Plan, which sets out clear guidelines for new housing across the area and neighbouring Boston Borough up until 2036, states that 130 new homes should be built in Quadring.

Plans have already been put in for up to 60 new homes to be built on more than eight acres of land at the Crossroads Nurseries site, off Main Road, Quadring.

During a meeting in January, parish councillors agreed to ask South Holland District Council for any community contributions from the Crossroads Nurseries development to be put into the school and NHS services.

Mrs Iszatt said: "If the school expands, we'll need some investment so we need to make sure that we're in the know when it comes to new developments.

"We need to make sure that Quadring keeps its primary school and we can't let this slip."

According to Ofsted, Brown's and Cowley currently has a capacity for 110 pupils at a school which was rated ninth best in the county for the progress of Key Stage 2 children in reading, writing and maths.

Coun Michael Clift, parish council chairman, said: "We've discussed this issue at previous meetings and we're fully aware of the lack of services in Quadring."
