S.77 Consultation: Shoreditch Park Primary School

Closed 21 Feb 2020

Opened 17 Dec 2019

Overview

Hackney Council is redeveloping the Britannia Leisure Centre site to deliver a new secondary school, new homes – including genuinely affordable social rent and shared ownership homes – and a new state-of-the-art leisure centre. 

As a part of this project, we have invested over £700,000 in Shoreditch Park Primary School, and will invest more than £2m, including a new early years centre attached to the school campus. 

To deliver the next phase of the Britannia project, including the early years centre and genuinely affordable housing, the council is required to apply to the Secretary of State for Education to release a section of land on the existing Shoreditch Park Primary School for change of use.

Where is the site:

The area identified for change of use is the north-west section of the playground. A part of this is currently being occupied by the Hoxton Press showroom.

A map of the area to be used for the site can be found below. The red outline represents the existing school site. The area identified for the change of use is in the top lefthand side of the site, adjacent to Bridgport Place and Penn Street.

Why are you consulting:

To change the use of the identified area, the Secretary of State requires the council to consult the local community. As parents or nearby residents of the school, we want to hear your comments on the proposal.

What will the land be used for:

The land is earmarked for the site of new homes built by the Council – of which nearly 90% will be for genuinely social rent and shared ownership –  and an early years centre attached to Shoreditch Park Primary School.
