New Modular Unit for Hadrian Academy

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Hadrian LogoWe have worked on a number of projects for Hadrian Academy in Dunstable, but the latest happened in double-quick time!

We made a planning application to Central Bedfordshire Council on behalf of the school for the installation of a modular classroom unit – the school was seeking a quick response, as they hope to have the new out-of-school classroom ready to use at the beginning of the new school year this September.

Permission was helpfully granted by Central Beds within just 5 weeks, which has enabled the school to move forward with modular suppliers to source and install the classroom. This should happen over the summer holidays.

We can offer advice to anyone thinking about seeking planning permission for a dwelling, business or public sector organisation.

Hadrian Academy Secures Planning Consent

We are delighted that Central Bedfordshire Council Planning Committee decided yesterday to approve two separate applications for extensions to Hadrian Academy in Dunstable. The meeting took place in the Council Chamber at Chicksands, and we were in attendance to put forward the views of the Academy in support of the applications.

This means that the Academy now has consent to improve the administration block and staff room by adding a first floor extension. In addition, they now also have permission to provide improved out-of-school facilities in the form of a new classroom, and an extension to the hall to enlarge the dining area.

Both applications were brought to the Committee for a decision because of a number of local concerns about parking and traffic management. However, the Committee was satisfied that parking issues were being adequtely addressed by the provision of more on-site spaces for teachers and visitors.

The Academy hopes to start work on at least one of the construction projects next year.
