Major extension given the go ahead at Bush Post Primary School
A major extension has been given the go ahead for the Bush Post Primary School in Riverstown.
The Louth and Meath Education and Training Board have been granted conditional planning permission by Louth County Council to expand the peninsula-based school.
They have been given the go ahead to partially demolish an area of the existing school including a detached external store, a permanent teaching structure and temporary teaching structures.
In their place it is planned to construct a new two storey extension which will include Home Economics, Science, Art and general classrooms along with a Special Needs Unit, offices, toilets and ancillary stores.
The extension will include roof mounted photovoltaic panels while a new onsite ESB substation structure is also planned.
As part of the works there will be modifications to the existing school elevation forming a new general classroom space and modifications to the front boundary including a width increase of both existing site entrances.
The school also hope to adjust the existing bus set down area to the front of the school and reconfigure the existing car park to provide new staff parking areas with onsite visitor set down and parking facilities.
