Plan rejection fails to deter South Craven School dome bid
3:00pm Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
A school’s planning application to build a multi-purpose air dome occupying the space of four tennis courts has been refused by planning officers acting under delegated powers.
“We needed to put in a couple of extra assessments and they were not able to be completed on time,” he said.
“It is not a delay for us, as we had not planned to start work until the spring.”
The dome would take just two weeks to put up and would come, via a Lancashire company, from Slovenia where they are used to ensure sporting events can continue even in bad weather.
The school hopes to use the dome for indoor sport, assemblies and presentations.
The application was refused permission because of harm to neighbouring amenities.
Officers from Craven District Council accepted there would be benefits to the school.
