A new Springhill School is currently being built on Exchange St.
LCC has put forward the following proposals:
* Retention of th reception building at Hannah St and the Infant building at Exchange St for community use (to be run by local voluntary management committees)
*Demolition of the junior building at Exchange St and creation of a recreational area
The success of these proposals will be dependent on developing viable plans for the use of the buildings and the identification of "umbrella" groups willing to take on the management of the buildings.
Some funding will also be needed to develop the recreational area and carry out any necessary repairs to the buildings, but LCC is committed to exploring the feasibility of these plans and of involving the local community at every step.

Have you got any ideas as to how these facilities can be utilised?
The Out of School Club, which already uses the present Exchange St building is obviously top of the list.
