A PRIMARY school has been granted permission to create a trim trail and to install play equipment for pupils' use.

A planning application to add the features at Bleak Hill Primary School in Windle was drawn up and submitted to the council by Stuart Rainbow.

The application stated that the school seeks to "provide a trim trail for the use of the children of the school for activity in line with the national curriculum.

"The trim trail is constructed of powder crated steel and timber which is treated".

The school has previously submitted plans for a £2.5m expansion to meet growing demand. Phases one and two of the proposed expansion have been given planning permission by the council.

The trim trail plans were granted the go-ahead by the council.
