New Primary School For Borough One Step Closer
Mary Macleod says Brentford site has been identified
Local MP Mary Macleod says a new primary school for the borough is now on track, following the news that the former bus station site at Commerce Road, Brentford may be a potential site.
Mary said she had now been informed that Transport for London commissioned a study to explore sites for the possible relocation of the bus station, and has narrowed the list down to just one potential location. The study, which is being jointly undertaken by ISIS, the land owner, could pave the way for a new school on the site.
Mary raised the issue with the Mayor last August.
Mary said:“I am very pleased to receive news from the Mayor of London that a potential site has been found to re-house the bus station. This means that we are one step closer to achieving something which is essential for Hounslow. With the population of the Borough expanding at its current rate, we need to act now to ensure that there are enough places at excellent schools to provide for all of our children.”
TfL and ISIS will continue to discuss the potential new site and Mary has pledged to work alongside the Mayor of London as the process continues to move forward.
