Approval for increase in school capacity in the London Borough of Wandsworth
19th December 2018
On behalf of the Finton House School Educational Trust, Nexus Planning has received Planning Committee Approval to vary an existing Section 106 Agreement to lift a cap on pupil numbers at Finton House School in South West London to 340 pupils.
The site is located in a predominantly residential part of inner London in a Borough that expects careful management of pupil numbers and the impact of school activities on local residents. Working with Mayer Brown, Nexus Planning ensured that strong evidence of the impact on transport and noise was provided and that a Travel Plan was prepared that sought to not just mitigate the travel impact of new pupils, but to actually improve impact on local residents through promoting sustainable transport methods over use of private vehicles.
At Planning Committee, Members praised the work that had gone into the development of a robust Travel Plan and how consultation was conducted with local residents.
