Cllrs Elliott and Healy urge EFA to consider all sites for Turing House

At full Council on Tuesday 13th September the Conservative administration voted through a motion calling on the Education Funding Authority to secure the best site possible for Turing House.

Cllr Elliott spoke during the debate and outlined the continuing local concern at the lack of information from the EFA and called on the Cabinet Member for Schools, Cllr Paul Hodgins, to ensure that the EFA considers all sites put forward, including land adjacent to the David Lloyd health club on Uxbridge Road,  and that where a site is chosen full justification is communicated by the EFA to residents on why other sites are not suitable.

"This Council:
   - continues to support the establishment of Turing House, and re-affirms its
call on the EFA to secure the best site possible for the school and our
borough's parents
   - maintains its position that Turing House admissions must be fair to all of
its stakeholders
   - commits to continuing work on enhancing open spaces for Whitton and
Heathfield"

Notes:

EFA: Education Funding Authority - the central government agency purchasing land which will ultimately be used by Turing House School.
