The developers also tweaked the designs to make it more in keeping with the area.

Despite the changes, residents still objected to the scheme as the look of the building would still be out of keeping of the area and some asked for it to be converted to family housing.

According to an email, the developers told planning officers they will be withdrawing this application following the wave of objections and are now looking to pursue a redevelopment for houses only.

“The work would also require access to the site which has safeguarding issues for a school full of children – although this is a secondary school there is also a primary school on site.

“Any kind of work can be disruptive to the children and staff and the day-to-day running of the school.”
