AN APPLICATION submitted by a special needs school seeking permission for temporary classrooms has been granted.

Proposals for Mill Green School, in Parr, were sent to council planners.

The application sought a certificate of lawfulness for proposed temporary classroom buildings at Mill Green, on Lansbury Avenue.

The application form said they are "required for overspill" until new permanent classrooms are ready.

The temporary mobile classrooms will be situated on "existing hardstanding" and will be on site for a period "not exceeding" two years, as "outlined in the Town and Country Planning Act". 

In a report, planning officer Alex Ball said: "I conclude that the proposed temporary classroom buildings are considered to be permitted development under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015."

The certificate of lawfulness was granted.
