Planning Application – Support
The school and governors have been working with HS2 for a number of months to promote road safety in the interests of the school community. The current construction route for all construction traffic is Joiners Lane, Denham Lane and Chesham Lane, directly passing the school gate. This will include multiple HGV lorries per day and other associated traffic generated to and from the Chalfont St Peter vent shaft construction site representing a significant danger.
HS2 has recently submitted a planning application to construct a new road directly off the A413 to access the site. This road will be temporary and fully reinstated to green fields post construction. Whether a supporter of HS2 or not, we are all supporters of safety first and foremost, irrespective of the politics and the entire project going ahead or not.
Robertswood School and the Governing Board fully supports this application as this will remove a huge safeguarding risk to health and safety from the roads directly outside the school and assist by easing peak time pressures around the school.
We invite all parents, guardians, local residents and children* to sign the petition papers which will be located in the school reception lobby and held by volunteers at the gate when available. It is of vital importance that the whole school community supports this application. Please do this by Friday 20th September 2019 latest to allow time to submit to planners.
(*children will be signing their name and school – no addresses - please advise school reception if you do not want your child to sign)
How can you help?
1. Sign the petition – name and school, no addresses.
2. Visit Chiltern District Council website – Application number PL/19/2726/FA and register your support for the application and positive safety implications for the school community. You can do this directly as a parent and/or local resident.
3. Write to or email the school reception and we will collate and forward your correspondence of support.
We thank you in anticipation for your support.
