The school consists of an original Grade II listed building and surrounding buildings, all of which currently lie within the green belt.Inspector Tim Wood ruled that the buildings proposed to be demolished are “very low and unobtrusive”, and “hardly make an impact at all” on the surrounding landscape.Transversely, the replacement building would be two storeys, with a footprint 22 per cent........
