Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Primary School – Consultation concerning the disposal of playing field land
The consultation concerning the request from Highways England to purchase Council owned land on Dunningsbridge Road, Netherton which forms part of the playing field at Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Primary School ended on 23rd October 2020. The reason for the request is to enable the pedestrian bridge over Dunningsbridge Road (A5036) to be replaced and relocated.
In 2017 there was a proposal to provide an at grade crossing at the junction but due to public pressure following road safety concerns it was agreed by Sefton Councillors and Highways England that the bridge would be replaced.
The Council will now apply for written permission from the Secretary of State for Education to dispose of this small area of land under Section 77 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. If the disposal is approved the school will still have an area in excess of the recommended minimum playing field area.
