All Saints Church Of England Primary School in Highlands Drive, Maldon, has been granted permission for a new extension by Maldon District Council.

The front and rear extensions to  the 1970s primary school building will allow for existing classrooms to reconfigured and a new reception area to be built.

According to a Maldon District Council report, the school accommodation and facilities will be improved as a result of the plans which would replace existing hardstanding in the Highlands Drive site.

The plans were referred to council's central area planning committee on January 25 because the applicant, Philip Brown, is related to a member of staff at the authority, according to officers.

Councillor Stephen Nunn (Non-aligned independent, Maldon North) said at the planning meeting: "These single story extensions seem to be infill, with no loss of amenity at the sight or the playground."

According to Cllr Nunn, the site has been designated as a school since the 1970s.

The extension at the front of the building would be visible from Highlands Drive, however it will not be taller than any of the existing buildings. The proposals will match and compliment the school, according to the report.
