On the 14th May 2010 a planning application was made by Roy Lockwood, the Director for Children & Young People at Wolverhampton City Council for planning permission to demolish the existing Oak Meadow Primary SchoolÂ building on Ryan Avenue in Ashmore Park and replace it with a new two story school.
Whilst there is seemingly no official news on what the City Council proposes to do with the pupils of Oak Meadow Primary whilst a construction project of this scale takes places, WV11 suggests that they could perhaps use the Danesmore Park Primary School site in Russell Close, Ashmore Park, which they closed in December 2007?
This site currently stands derelict and vandalised despite promises byÂ councillorsÂ throughout the consultation period that this would not be allowed to happen if the school were to close.
WV11 Comment: It seems somewhatÂ absurdÂ that after closing a perfectly good school building less than 3 years ago (apparently due to dwindling Â pupil numbers) and leaving it to rot, the council is now seeking planning permission to rebuild an entire school, presumably to cater for increased pupil numbers?
