Green light for Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd new school building

Plans to build a brand new primary school in Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd have been approved by members of Denbighshire County Council’s Planning Committee.

Members voted for the development on over a hectare with land for the primary school, including external play areas, habitat area, formation of new vehicular access, car parking with drop off area, landscaping, bin store, LPG and sprinkler tanks and associated pedestrian links.

The new school will be built on land opposite Bryn y Clwyd, Llanfair using funding from the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools and Education programme, as well as investment from Denbighshire County Council.

Councillor Huw Hilditch-Roberts, Cabinet Lead Member for Education, Children, Young People and the Welsh Language, said: “I’m delighted that the Planning Committee has approved the planning proposal. This gives us the green light to progress with building the brand new facilities.

“The current facilities are dated are in desperate need to modernisation. Concerns had also been raised about the lack of car parking, staff areas, public areas and accessibility to the school, which is located on the busy A525 in the centre of the village.

“This is a significant milestone in the history of Ysgol Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd. We now look forward to starting the process of building this much needed facility in the village and that youngsters, both now and in the future, can benefit from first class facilities they deserve”
