Two consultation events to discuss additional WILL NOT take place on 12 &13 November.
In a letter sent out on 9 November, Paddy Bradley, Swindon Council Head of Commissioning: Economy & Attainment, Children Services, says:
"I am writing to let you know that the planned consultation events have had to be postponed for technical reasons.
"The consultation events were scheduled to take place on Monday 12th at the Tawny Owl pub and Tuesday 13th at Orchid Vale School.
"The July 2012 Cabinet report about the need for Primary school places in North Swindon stated that the land proposed for a new school was not within the boundary of Mouldon Hill Country Park.
"Unfortunately, this was an error, as further research has shown the land to be within the Park albeit at the periphery and in an area not often frequented by members of the public.
"Cabinet took a decision to approve consultation but there was inaccurate information included in the report. The Council therefore has to postpone the consultation in the light of this new information.
"Officers will work on further options and take proposals back to Cabinet in December, so that we can re-start consultation on options as soon as possible thereafter.
"I would like to apologise for the inconvenience and difficulties caused by the need to postpone the consultation. The need for primary school places in North Swindon remains a priority and officers will work to ensure the Council can deliver the required number of places by September 2014."
