Aldrington Church of England Primary School in Eridge Road, Hove, wants to extend its current building and carry out alterations as it has agreed to take extra pupils.

Brighton and Hove City Council has already agreed that the number of school places at Aldrington should rise to ease a shortage locally.

Aldrington intends to put up a two-storey block and build a link corridor. The school hall will also be extended and new parking spaces created.

And the council’s Planning Committee will also look at a proposal for the old police station in Holland Road, Hove.

The council is seeking permission for a change of use and to build an extension up to three storeys high.

It wants to demolish the garages at the back of the building and carry out a number of other alterations to turn it into an annex of West Hove Junior School.

Councillors are being asked to approve all three applications at a meeting at Hove Town Hall at 2pm next Wednesday (28 August).

The meeting is open to the public and the agenda and reports can be found here.
