The works include: demolition of external canopy, window / door / roofing replacements and alterations to ‘1960’s building’, new and improved access, alterations to the car park creating 2 play areas and additional parking spaces; a new bin collection point, cycle storage and boundary treatments.  Wharton was instructed to work with the planning and design team led by Keri Dobson of Dobson Grey, to successfully take the scheme through the planning process.
