Sale of Land at Parklands School in Swansea

Volume 590: debated on Thursday 15 January 2015

I rise to present a petition opposing the sale of land at Parklands school in Sketty, Swansea, following a similar petition of 254 local petitioners.

The petition states:

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage the City and County of Swansea Council to reconsider plans to sell the land at Parklands School in Sketty.

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The Petition of residents of the UK,

Declares that there are plans to sell land at Parklands School in Sketty, Swansea; further that Parklands School is oversubscribed and faces increasing demand; further that it is the only school land sale that proposes to dissect a school site; further that the proposal under-estimates the school roll as consisting of 420 pupil places when it is currently 480 plus nursery places; further that the planned sale would disproportionately affect pupils with disabilities; further that the proposal has not yet been consulted upon; and further that a local petition on this matter has been signed by 2054 residents of the Swansea West constituency.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage the City and County of Swansea Council to reconsider plans to sell the land at Parklands School in Sketty.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.][P001422]
