A public meeting will be held next week to discuss proposals for a new free school in central Watford.

St John’s Church, in Sutton Road, is launching a bid to build a Church of England primary school in Watford.

Residents are invited to attend a meeting in St John’s Church on Thursday at 7.30pm to hear about the plans and ways to get involved.

Watford’s MP Richard Harrington and the town’s elected mayor, Dorothy Thornhill, will be at the meeting.

Will this school mean that Watford planners can use this as a fabulous opportunity / excuse for more housing units and infilling in congested Central Watford as they often claim that education has nothing to do with planning hence lack of school spaces?

After all to many, the Health Campus with the 'decoupled hospital' increasingly seems to be a smoke screen to push at the last count 700 housing units into a very highly densely populated ward with the consequent loss of allotment land.

Just asking whether the playground will be on the roof as the once unacceptable becomes acceptable for certain groups?
