Porchester School - Proposed Sports Hall

Porchester School are making a planning application for a new sports hall. It’s another of those occasions when opinion is split. We have had people contact us who are both in support of the application (largely parents and teachers) and those who are against (particularly residents of Petersfield Road who will back on to the site).

The application will come before the Planning Board on Monday 17th August at the Town Hall. The meeting starts at 5pm and the application is on in second place, which means it should be heard about 5.30 – 6pm (Although as those who attended the meeting for Southwick Road know only too well that’s a very approximate time).

I will be speaking for those residents who are against the proposal and Jane will be speaking on behalf of those who are in favour. If anyone would like to talk to us about it before the meeting then please either Jane or I know.
