The design team presented to the Islington Design Review Panel in mid-February. The revised plans were reviewed positively with a small number of clear recommendations to make prior to submission of the planning application which is now scheduled to be submitted in mid-March, enabling the matter to be considered by the planning committee in their meeting in June 2015. Subject to planning permission being approved, the already appointed contractor is still advising us that the building will be complete and ready for occupation in January 2016. Subject to the approval of the planning committee it is proposed that the majority of the demolition of the former Ashmount Primary School should occur during the summer holidays with no disruption to the pupils. We will, of course, advise you if we hear anything to the contrary.
The application for the two temporary classrooms is planned to be submitted in March 2015 and, again subject to planning permission being approved, we would expect them to come onto site in July and to be completed during August ready for occupation in September.
