Theale Primary School applies to keep temporary classrooms due to sprinkler flooding

A school has filed a retrospective application for temporary classrooms.

Theale Primary School has applied to keep three temporary classrooms and a temporary toilet building on its playing field for up to 24 months.

A large part of the school was recently flooded due to a defective sprinkler system, so the temporary classrooms are needed to allow repairs to take place.

They will also ensure the day-to-day running of the school can continue with minimal disruption.

But oil company Exolum objected to the proposal saying it would restrict access to its pipeline both for routine maintenance and in an emergency.

The proposals do not affect parking or vehicle or pedestrian access to the school.

The temporary buildings are all fitted with level access and ramps to enable disabled access.

West Berkshire Council is due to decide on the application by Monday, March 4.
