Wiltshire Council Wins priority building status for schools

As a result of a well presented bid the Conservative administration of Wiltshire Council has won priority building status for three school sites in the County.  The bid for funding from the £1.1bn Priority School Building Programme was put to central Government at the end of 2011 and was a joint effort between the Conservative led Wiltshire Council and local Conservative MPs John Glen and Claire Perry. 

A delighted Cabinet Member responsible for Education Conservative Councillor Lionel Grundy said “I am very pleased that our hard work in submitting this bid has been rewarded with financial success which will benefit the children of our County.  We do not yet know the full extent of the funding but we are very hopeful that it will be sufficient to wholly cover the three building projects”  The three educational establishments concerned are St Mary's C of E Infant School, which was a joint application with St Peter's C of E Junior School and Wyvern College.
