On behalf of Willmott Dixon and Caerphilly County Borough Council, DPP has secured planning permission within 8-weeks, for the much-needed 80-place expansion to Trinity Fields ALN School, located in Ystrad Mynach.
DPP has played a crucial role in securing planning permission for a much-needed two-storey new-build extension. The expansion, which is part of the wider Sustainable Communities for Learning Band B initiative, will provide additional facilities to accommodate the growing demand for school places for an additional 80 pupils.
The design by Rio Architects provides extra learning space to support the educational needs of Children and Young People with profound and complex requirements. The design of the two-storey extension is contemporary, creating a positive contrast with the existing building, and is connected by a single-storey link providing the transition between the existing and new build blocks.
Thanks to the collaborative efforts of DPP, the client and design team, and the Council, planning permission has been secured in an impressive 8-week timeframe. This milestone enables the works to commence over the summer, ensuring that the students and staff can benefit from the enhanced facilities as soon as possible.
Speaking about the project, Tom Molyneux-Wright, Principal Planner at DPP said:
We are immensely proud to be a part of this project that will provide essential additional learning space for Trinity Fields ALN School and contribute to the ongoing effort to foster sustainable and supportive communities for learning.
