On Monday 20 March a meeting between the Learning for Life Partnership and Shavington-cum-Gresty Parish Council took place to discuss Shavington Primary School’s car park on Main Road.
The Clerk of Shavington-cum-Gresty Parish Council and the CEO of Learning for Life Partnership, together with a representative from the School’s Trust and a representative from the Parish Council, shared their desire to keep the school car park open and accessible and worked together to attempt to address any issues and find a workable way forward.
It is with this cooperative spirit that, over the coming weeks, the ongoing discussions will focus on developing a solution, which will then be presented to the newly elected Parish Council for consideration in early June 2023.
In the meantime, the CEO of Learning for Life Partnership has offered to keep the car park open until the negotiation is concluded and the Parish Council has reached its decision. While the trust is legally unable to maintain and operate the car park through its own funds, it hopes to broker a longer-term solution which recognises the council’s desire to ensure the continued availability of the space for community groups.
Shavington-cum-Gresty Parish Council and the Learning for Life Partnership wish to thank all community groups and residents for their support and contribution towards the topic and to reassure them that both parties are proactively working together to find the best possible solution for the benefit of the community and Shavington Primary School pupils.
