Residents to have their say on proposals to replace Oakdale and Pontllanfraith schools
A public consultation is underway on plans by Caerphilly County Borough Council to replace Oakdale and Pontllanfraith comprehensive schools with a new building.
The first phase of the council’s ‘Secondary Rationalisation Programme’ aims to reduce the number of spare school places in the county borough from from 22.1% to 16.9%.
Under the proposals, a new school will replace Oakdale and Pontllanfraith so that Islwyn West will then be served by Blackwood and the new school. The council has secured funding of £20 million to deliver the project which will also include a review of catchment areas.
Drop in sessions for the public to attend will be held at:
- Pontllanfraith Comprehensive School on January 22 between 3.30pm to 6.30pm.
- Oakdale Comprehensive School on January 23 between 3.30pm to 6.30pm.
- Blackwood Comprehensive School on January 30 between 3.30pm to 6.30pm.
