Glusburn Primary School could soon have a new classroom.

North Yorkshire County Council is seeking planning permission to replace a double prefabricated unit at the Colne Road site and change the parking boundary.

A design and access statement, prepared by Jacobs UK, says the existing classroom has reached the end of its useful life and would be replaced with a single-storey structure with a low-pitched roof.

The statement adds: “The site will require minor landscaping due to some of the demolition work that is necessary. This includes modifications to the car park to suit new access arrangements.”
