The Kingfield Project

Date: 6th Oct 2016 @ 2:36pm

I wanted to write to you with a brief update on The Kingfield Project.

The next stage of the project is to make a planning application to Cheshire East Council which will include proposals for the new education, sporting and community facilities, including the relocation of Egerton Primary School to the Westfield Drive site at Knutsford Academy. 

Throughout the summer productive discussions have taken place between the project and key stakeholders, including Cheshire East Council to help clarify the scope and funding. These discussions have opened up exciting new possibilities of linking our proposals with wider developments being considered by the Council and others to enhance community provision in areas such as health and leisure. This is to be welcomed, but it has resulted in delays to our original timetable. 

We have now reached a point where the proposals specific to education are being formally considered by the Council, a process which we hope will conclude by the end of October and thus enabling the planning application to proceed. This will be accompanied by further consultation on the detail with parents and the wider community. 

God bless
