Bishop's Cleeve Liberal Democrat borough councillors Richard Stanley and Helen Munro are leading calls for the County Council to see sense and locate the required new primary school in Bishop's Cleeve adjacent to the new housing development.
The proposal from the Tory County Council is to locate it to the south of the village, on school playing fields, whereas the new houses are all to the north of the village. Dozens of parents will have to drive their child to school, adding to the existing congestion and pollution levels.

Please take a few minutes to sign the petition to the County Council to help stop this ridiculous decision:
