"Don't miss your chance to speak out on school plans"

Residents of a village in the Vale of Glamorgan have been urged to have their say on proposals on the future of the local primary school.

 

The Vale of Glamorgan Council have announced plans that would involve the school closing – with a replacement opening at a new site in Rhoose.

 

A second consultation on the proposals is currently running on the plans – and is set to close on July 9th.

 

South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies yesterday addressed a public meeting in the village – organised by the Save Llancarfan School Action Committee.

 

An earlier consultation was held earlier in the year – and people who had already responded should not be put off getting back in touch – he said.

 

Mr Davies said, “It was great to see the meeting so well attended on Monday – and I am hugely grateful to Becci Hemming and the local action committee for pulling it together.

 

“Residents raised several concerns about the proposals with me as part of the initial consultation – and I welcome the fact they will have another chance to have their say.

 

“These proposals have the potential to go far beyond Llancarfan – with impacts on neighbouring villages too.

 

“There have been several changes to the proposals following the initial consultation – so there are many additional points people may wish to make.

 

“It’s vital we don’t miss this opportunity – so if you have any comments, queries or concerns – make sure they are in by July 9th.”
