Work on a bright and modern primary school serving a new community in Plymouth is beginning.
Persimmon Homes Cornwall is constructing a multi-million pound, state-of-the-art school as part of its Saltram Meadow development in Plymstock.
Contractors Halsall Construction are building the two-form entry school which will accommodate 420 pupils as Persimmon Homes continues construction of phase four of the successful development.
It is anticipated the £5.8million school will be completed in November this year.
Persimmon Homes has completed approximately 454 of 1,684 homes at Saltram Meadow.
Adam Church, director in charge at Persimmon Homes Cornwall, said: “We are delighted to announce that we will be delivering this brand-new school.
“Saltram Meadow is a major development which has already rejuvenated the area. As well as delivering much-needed homes, we are committed to providing the infrastructure essential for building a community for the new residents and a key part of that is the school.”
“The building will offer an exceptional learning environment for the children living on the development.”
“Part of the school will also have the ability to be cordoned off so that it can be used by other members of the community out of hours.”
Persimmon Homes agrees to contribute huge sums of money towards things such as highways, education and open spaces through Section 106 agreements during the planning process.
In recent years Persimmon Homes Cornwall has invested hundreds of thousands of pounds in Plymouth towards roads, a high-quality transport network that will include a local bus service and biodiversity.
The fourth phase of construction has begun at Saltram Meadow and the development is proving popular with a range of buyers.
Jane Cartwright, sales director at Persimmon Homes Cornwall, said: “Saltram Meadow has been hugely successful. It is in a fantastic location, so it is no surprise to us that house hunters have been moving fast to secure their favoured plots and enjoy all the amenities this community has to offer including leisure facilities, shops and offices.”
