Old Hinguar School

After my regular Saturday morning session talking to Shoebury residents, I paid a visit to the drop in session at the old Hinguar School on the future plans for the site.

With the new Hinguar School now established, as part of the permission given for the new school, a financial return is required from the old school site to pay for the new building costs. You may recall that local Conservatives were successful in getting the front facade of the old Victorian School locally listed. When seeing the future plans, I was delighted to see that the retention of whole Victorian building had been included in the plans.

It is proposed that 32 new homes will be built with 9 new flats in the old Victorian building and 23 new three and four bedroom houses on the remainder of the site. If residents were unable to visit the recent drop-in sessions, further sessions are planned for the 11th and 12th of October or alternatively your thoughts and comments can be given here.

Hinguar School is built on huge stilts, so that the kids can run to the first floor and to protect against flooding that will take place yearly in 50 years time. Will these new houses be built on stilts and if not - how will they be protected?
Thank you
