Swiss Gardens School secure over £200k funding

Released: Thursday, 02 February 2017

Funds set aside for education from the Ropetackle North development in Shoreham-by-Sea have been confirmed to be heading the way of Swiss Gardens School.

The school sits within the catchment area of Hyde Housing's development, who have set aside £247,960 to contribute to education in the local community - as part of the section 106 legal agreement which is anticipated to be signed and completed very shortly.

This issue was brought to the attention of Adur District Council by the school and parents, at a recent meeting Leader of the Council, Cllr Neil Parkin. The Council then acted swiftly upon these ideas to push for an agreement to ring-fence the funding for Swiss Gardens School.

After discussions took place with West Sussex County Council, it was finally agreed that the funding would be used to secure improvements for school.

Leader of Adur District Council, Cllr Neil Parkin, welcomed the news:

“I am delighted that the County Council has listened to the Headteacher and Parents at Swiss Gardens School and agreed to ring-fence funds towards improvements to the school. I'm also pleased that thanks to Adur District Council's intervention and carrying forward these views, the funding can now benefit both the school and Ropetackle North development for years to come. This will deliver the positive ambitions of the developer and local community.”
