Note a recent objection filed as a Consultee Comment on the 8th December, on the subject of flooding.
The document on the planning portal submitted by Bradford Lead Local Flood Authority makes interesting reading. The document is on the portal as a word document so I have converted it to a pdf - see below:

Another feature, which isn't obvious from looking at the plans, is the school building will cut into the the slope of the land. This will necessitate the building of a high retaining wall behind the school on the east side, and another retaining wall on the west side in front of the school. If you look carefully at the perspective drawing you can see the retaining walls (on building zoom 3) - this is going to make a whole load of groundwater problems. No doubt it can all be fixed at a price, but it makes you wonder!

The above is a 3D model of the plans for the proposed new school. Note the amount of the ground which will become a hard surface and the extensive remodeling of the land which will be required to make flat areas. To make the flat area extensive retaining walls will be constructed and large areas will be fenced to keep the children in. The 2.4m peripheral fence is not shown.

To date, there are 49 objections to the plans for the new school.

Most of the objections mention the traffic chaos and gridlock we all know will happen. Many say the location is wrong and it should be opposite Aldi on the Riverside land which already has sports facilities next door.

Many of the objections are for the problem many parents and children will have with the non separation of school traffic and pedestrian access.

There is STILL NO HIGHWAYS REPORT

Just looking at the school 3d images and it is beyond belief that there will be three fences keeping the nursery kids within the site..all over 2m as well. Itís ridiculous and it so looks like a sole destroying place to bring up kids: more like a prison.

On another point the lovely green field will be destroyed just so they can put a school on it, but the kids will not be able to access any of the grassed areas to play on, unless it is supervised on the football pitch.

In effect this school could be built on a brownfield site, such as the old weaverstyle site which everyone can access relatively easily. This scheme is crazy.

Oooh..look at all that huge car park beside the school: Guess what though NONE of that is for you, (staff only). You will be in a one way queue of traffic trying to park somewhere down past the school, (likely beyond the soccer pitch..and if you dont get a space you will be spewed back out into traffic, struggling to park somewhere...NOT close by)!

I do not want to be in a line of traffic going around the school, trying to park. Basically you would have been in a queue of traffic from Skipton Road, to the school, then have to pass it as you couldnít park, and hopefully end up being somewhere down past the soccer pitch, having to walk alll the way back up with your children. Once handing them over you would have to walk all the way back to your car, then join the queuing one way traffic whilst dodging other cars pulling away in front of you. Then you would have to navigate through the built up narrow streets, dodging parked cars, to find yet again extensive queues of traffic along Howden Road, backing up because of the difficulties turning at the junction.
You could be further unlucky, if you caught up with the queues of traffic still trying to turn right onto Dale View!

Theres no point in trying to get to school early either because even if the gates were open, you would still have to wait to be let into school at the normal times: thus either way you can be certain that you will be in dire straits from the moment you head to school in your car.
Basically if you travel by car you would have no choice but to complete the queuing circuit.
As we all know, due to its location, there will be significantly more people travelling by car than currently do!

This proposal stinks and should be scrapped until a better traffic solution is found or better still a new location is found.
Oppose this proposal now. It is not fit for a modern community and is in my mind a very backward step from the current school.
