Approved – £1.5m to expand special schools

According to Hillingdon Times, building work at three special schools in west Hertfordshire is to go-ahead – after councillors approved £1.5 million investment.

The funding was approved by a meeting of Hertfordshire County Council’s cabinet on Monday (December 13).

At the meeting executive member for education, libraries and localism Cllr Terry Douris said there was a ‘very clear’ rising demand for places in special schools.

The investment, he said would increase the number of places – and ensure existing places remained available.

The plans were previously considered and unanimously backed by a meeting of the county council’s education, libraries and localism cabinet panel on Wednesday (December 11).
