Lib Dems call extraordinary council meeting to press for consultation on new school

Richmond’s Liberal Democrats have called an extraordinary council meeting to press for consultation with parents before the council takes a decision on a new catholic secondary school on the Clifden Road site in Twickenham. The resolution to be debated at the meeting will be:

“This council resolves to consult all parents of children at the borough’s maintained primary schools about the type of school places to be provided on the Clifden Road site, with options to include a new community school or a new Roman Catholic School. In the light of the results of this consultation, the Cabinet should recommend to full council the type of school to be provided on the site.”
