Hampshire Chronicle: New plan for 1,500-place secondary school New plan for 1,500-place secondary school

PLANS have been unveiled today to build a new 1,500-place secondary school in Hampshire.

Civic chiefs want to ease the pressure on ever increasing demand for student places by building a new school in Horton Heath.

Councillors in Eastleigh will consider proposals next week.

The new facility could be needed as early as 2018 as rising population figures in the region due to new developments will create a need for 1,400 more secondary school places in Bishopstoke.

An areas south of Horton Heath and west of Burnett's Lane has been indentified as the best location for the new school.

The road network needs drastic improvement to ease the congestion also. It took yet again over an hour to get from Eastleigh College to Fair Oak last night. Eastleigh is one giant car park as soon as the M27 or M3 has an issue. Thats the second time in as many weeks that I've experienced this crawl. I accept it usually is about 30-40 minutes at peak but over an hour to do something which takes a little over 10 minutes if free flowing is rediculous! SORT THE CONGESTION!
