Planning Permission granted for Cwmaman Primary School

We are pleased that the Local Authority’s Development Control Committee has granted full planning permission for Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s (RCT) new £7.2m Cwmaman Primary School in Wales.

Cwmaman schoolThe school is being funded as part of the Council’s £200m RCTinvest three-year programme which involves new schools, play areas, town and village centres and highways.

The project will see Glynhafod Junior School and Cwmaman Infant School replaced with a new 21st century school for 240 primary pupils including a nursery.

The school, situated on the site of a former colliery, was in an area at risk of significant flooding. As part of the planning stage, Waterman undertook detailed hydraulic modelling and flood risk engineering services. Through the design of flood alleviation measures we have delivered a scheme which ensures the school is safe from flooding whilst reducing the potential impacts of a flood event for the wider community.

Eudine Hanagan, Councillor and Cabinet Member for Education and Lifelong Learning, commented; “This is a major milestone for this significant project. Not only will the new community primary school provide a purpose-built 21st Century environment for pupils to learn in, but it will also bring two schools on separate sites together – making it easier for the parents with children at both schools.”

The school is due for completion in August 2018.
