PLANS to improve a Clitheroe school are set to be given the green-light.

Lancashire County Council’s Development Control Committee will discuss the plans for Ribblesdale High School on Thursday.

The scheme is for the demolition of the caretakers house to provide eight parking spaces at the Queen’s Road school.

Also in the plans, the Block D building will be demolished and a new activity studio while an extension to Block G will bring an extra 10 classrooms.

In the statement with the application it said: “The planning application is for a number of developments at Ribblesdale High School to allow the yearly admission at the school to be increased from 255 to 285 pupils and increasing the total number of pupils at the school from 1,305 to 1,425 over a four-year-period.”

There will also be a new pedestrian entrance and widening off the road on Turner Street.

Officers say the application should be approved due to ‘ increase in demand for school places which current high schools cannot accommodate.”
