Concerned about school places in Launceston? - Public meeting this Wednesday

A lot of people are concerned about school places in and around Launceston. The three primary schools in town are close to (or at) capacity and some children are having to be be bussed out to village schools. This may be great for some, but very problematic for other families.

A new school is promised as part of the Hay Common development, but this only has to be built when the 70th house is ready for occupation - and that may be some time in the future.

My colleague Jade Farrington has arranged a public meeting of the community network panel with Cornwall Council officers and others concerned with school places and the new development. It will take place this Wednesday - 17th June - at 7pm in the Guildhall at the Town Hall.

The town council will also be explaining their plans to take over the running of Launceston library.

If you are interested in either of these issues, please come along, ask questions and have your say.
