The Conservative manifesto, produced for the local elections held in May this year, promised residents “they would be consulted rigorously and widely when the Council proposes changes in policy.”

But behind closed doors, in early July, the Conservative Leader of the Council, Councillor Kevin Davis, signed an official request for action agreeing to consider moving the Health and Wellbeing Centre from Surbiton Health Centre, next to Lime Tree Primary School, to Hollyfield House, Hollyfield Road.

New Lime Tree Primary School in Surbiton

 

Kingston Lib Dems - Building new school places. On time and on budget.

 

malcolm-self.jpg

I'm delighted to inform local families that the construction of the new Lime Tree school in Oakhill, Surbiton is progressing according to plan.

It will open with a nursery class and two reception classes this September.

Malcolm Self, councillor for Surbiton Hill ward, says:

“I’m pleased that the Lib Dem council has been so successful in providing new primary school places.

Kingston is the only council in London to be building a new primary school and I’m really pleased that it’s located in our ward."

The new school recently featured in an ITN report highlighting Kingston’s success in providing new places.

Previously, the Kingston Conservative spokesman on Education has said that if became Executive Member for Children’s Services, he would replace any 'silly idea' of building a primary school on the hospital site.
