New Primary School for Putney Hospital site - The Society Response Read the latest letter sent to Cllr Govindia April 2012

Having viewed the plans unveiled by the Council for a new primary school on the disused Putney Hospital site to accomodate 470 schoolchildren and 24 flats; the Society has responded with a number of concerns for the plans for the site which is surrounded by conservation area and public common land. These include:

- The size of the site to accomodate both needs of school and flat residents

- The idea of having a playground on the roof

- The possible detrimental effect on other local schools particularly where school numbers have been falling

- The increase in traffic in the Lower Richmond Road

- The lack of parking and dropping off space

- The lack of alternative good local transport

- but also supporting the need for an additional school in Putney and the possibility of an alternative site
