Uplyme Primary School planning approval


We were delighted to hear that East Devon District Council's Planning Committee unaimously approved the Reserved Matters Application for the new Uplyme Primary School this morning.

We worked closely with NetZero Buildings, a specialist designer of off-site manufactured educational buildings, to design the external works for a new two storey, single-form entry primary school which when complete will enable Mrs Ethelston’s CE Primary Academy to relocate from its current Victorian premises.

The proposed new school site is located close to a flood plain, so we worked closely with a specialist sub-consultant to model the flood zones and to demonstrate to the Environment Agency that the school would be safe in up to the 1 in 1,000 year flood. We also prepared preliminary designs for the highway access, the internal car park layout and servicing requirements and prepared a School Travel Plan.
