AMENDED plans for a controversial school which is set to be built on Mapledurham Playing Fields (MPF) have been put forward to the council.

Revisions include extending the multi-use games area (MUGA) so it is fit for netball use and relocating the playground site.

The  biggest consultation in the town's history showed an overwhelming majority of residents were in favour of the proposals.

New plans were put forward to the council recently and residents have until March 18 to respond to a new consultation.

A report reads: "The proposed MUGA has been extended by 3m to the west: it is now 18.5m x 37m to meet the Sport England standard for community netball use.

"The siting of the proposed school building has been shifted 1.23m east and 1m south, well within the redline application site, in order to allow for retention of more trees along the western side of the site and to provide more space around the entrance, car park and Reception/Y1 play area."

Letters have been sent out to residents who commented on the original application to inform them of the revisions.

It is not yet known whether the revised plans will be discussed by councillors or handed over to officers to approve or reject.

Residents were given just two weeks to respond to the amended plans, rather than the three weeks which are given for statutory consultation.

A council spokesman added: "Members of the public have two weeks to review the revised proposals and make comments to council officers.

"The details and plans submitted by the applicant seek to amend the current planning application in response to concerns raised by the original proposals.

"Two weeks is considered a reasonable time for interested parties to respond.”
