PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A school ranked the 'Best in Berkshire' has sparked controversy in the community after submitting plans to expand. Fears have been raised over a rise in noise levels after the school has been given permission to convert nearby buildings to allow for extra pupils. Waverley School in Finchampstead hopes to convert a double garage and build two extensions to allow space for ten additional spaces. Objections to the plan were submitted against the application, with residents citing concerns about “noise and air pollution” which will greatly impact on their “quality of life”. Shelley Sandum, “strongly” opposed the scheme and claims she “suffers” from noise pollution already during the nursery’s opening times. In her objection, she said: “We are unable to use our garden during these times due to the existing noise from the nursery. Expanding the nursery further would add to the noise pollution for the residents and would impact negatively on our quality of life."

. The two schemes together will allow for 50sqm of additional educational space for the school. The proposal claimed that the development would have “no impact” on nearby homes, however, this is disputed by some of those living nearby. Another occupant of neighbouring Goldsmith Close, Mrs R Blyth, was “disappointed” that the wider community had not been consulted before the application was submitted and claims that any future house sale would be “directly impacted” after a surveyor noted that any purchaser would be affected by noise levels from the school. She added: “By expanding the nursery, there will be an increase in noise pollution for our properties, which has not been addressed in this application and thoughts given as to how this would be minimised. The site, situated on Waverley Way, lies within the settlement boundary of Finchampstead and is a private school for children of all ages – ranging from infants to older teenagers. Waverley School offers flexible childcare provision, with a choice of drop-off and collection times, between 7:30am and 6pm throughout the year – costing £87 for a full day. The school is ranked ‘Best in Berkshire’ having placed in the ‘Times Top 10’ for the past 11 years and was rated ‘Excellent’ in the most recent school inspection.
