Quoted in the News Shopper

Some good news! Remember the local campaign against propsed feeder schools? The Langley Park Learning Trust responded to the consultation, and have decided not to proceed.

I spoke to Monica Charsley, Bromley and Bexley correspondent at the News Shopper, about the decision:

Robert Sharp, a spokesperson for the Fair Access Langley campaign group, said: “We are delighted with the decision.

“So many people worked hard to raise awareness about the consultation, and the number of people who responded was a factor in the decision.

“But it is also pleasing that the trustees have engaged with and accepted the social, educational and environmental arguments raised by the community.

“However, we remain concerned that the Trust chose to consult in the first place.

“We urge them to be transparent about their reasons for doing so, and to reassure the community that they will not re-consult on this issue in the near future.”
