Representation: Replacing Tiptree Heath Primary School with a new modern school on TIP12, with community facilities.

Original submission

There may be the opportunity to reshape and modernise the provision of primary school education in Tiptree. TIP12 sits adjacent to TIP27 which is opposite Tiptree Heath Primary School. This school does not currently have any land for expansion and is constrained on all sides by housing. The road outside is dangerous and there is no provision for parking nor a drop off point for parents. Many of the buildings are old in need of repair and expensive to maintain. The Neighbourhood Plan should to consider the option of relocation the school to TIP12 and utilising the existing site for housing. This would provide a new modern primary school with capacity for extra form entry as well as modern facilities for the children and the local community. The link road through from TIP12 to TIP27 and TIP01 could be built with dedicated cycle lanes, crossings and protected footways. This would enhance the local streetscape and provide a safe corridor for children and parents.
