County Hall Meeting with Cllr John Hart, Cllr Jonathan Hawkins and Nick Hindmarsh Principal of Dartmouth Academy

This was a meeting to put forward the very strong case for relocating the Academy to the Community Hub adjacent to the leisure centre. Now that the Academy has been awarded over £8m towards redevelopment, it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to locate the school at the heart of the community such that facilities can be shared and used far more effectively. Such a relocation is dependent on the County Council facilitating a land swap and I hope that all those concerned for the future of the redevelopment will contact their councillor to press the case for the school to be rebuilt in the best possible location. It would also mean that pupils would face minimal disruption during the redevelopment.
