Consultation on possible new school for Red Lodge
- Credit: Archant
A new primary school could be built in Red Lodge to cope with the ever-increasing number of houses in the area.
Suffolk County Council is launching a consultation on the new primary school, which could take up to 60 pupils in each year group.
'The new school is needed for September 2018 to meet demand for additional places in the village arising from new housing developments,' said Joy Stodart, senior infrastructure officer at Suffolk County Council, in a letter to residents.
'We plan to open the new school with 30 places in each year group. However, the infrastructure for the new school will mean that the school will be able to expand to offer 60 places in each year group if demand continues to grow.'
The consultation period is set to run from Wednesday, July 13, up to July 28.

If approved, the school would be built on land within the Kings Warren Business Park, to the north of Red Lodge.
The landowner is also bringing forward plans for up to 46 new homes on land next to the new school and 5.2ha of land for businesses further north.
