Ysgol Bro Gwaun extension plan submitted
Plans for a major new extension to Ysgol Bro Gwaun, Fishguard, have been lodged with Pembrokeshire County Council.
The application involves a £10.9 million extension to include a Learning Resource Centre, new community learning facilities as well as a satellite unit of the Haverfordwest-based Portfield Special School.
It is likely to be considered by the Authority’s Planning and Rights of Way Committee next month.
The Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Safeguarding, Councillor Sue Perkins, said the design would give pupils a modern, vibrant environment in which to learn.
Local County Councillor Pat Davies said: “The governing body and the wider community have been consulted throughout this process and it is planned that the community as a whole will benefit from this development.”
If approved, work will start on site in the summer with the new extension being ready by September, 2017.
A separate planning application is due to be submitted for demolition works later on in the year.
The project is being jointly funded by Pembrokeshire County Council and Welsh Government as part of its 21st Century Schools programme.
