Plans are in the pipeline to demolish a “dilapidated” school building and replace it with a “desperately needed” new block.

The proposal has been put forward to Welwyn Hatfield Council on behalf of Stanborough School in Lemsford Lane, WGC.

According to the school’s design and access statement: “The proposal will include the demolition of the existing dilapidated music and drama wing, connected to the main portion of the school, and its replacement with greatly improved, and desperately needed music and drama facilities.

“The new single-storey music/drama block will contribute to the much-needed redevelopment of the whole school site, essential to improve the schools standing as an educational hub for the local community.”
