The future of the former Easington Colliery School site

  • Description

    "....We have reviewed all feedback we received.

    Almost 350 people gave their views on the proposal

    • 91% agreed that demolition was the best way of bringing the site back into use
    • 60% described the site as an eyesore and felt it was demoralising
    • 88% believed that demolishing the buildings would have a positive impact on them / their business
    We will now submit a planning application to clear the site and create a pocket park until a permanent use for the land is found. If the application is approved, it is hoped that work can begin in the early autumn 2020...."
