PLANS to relocate a secondary school to Great Ashby have been given the green light today (Tuesday).

Herts County Council's Development Control Committee met and approved plans to move The Thomas Alleyne School from Stevenage Old Town to Great Ashby as part of the wider Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme.

The BSF programme is set to rebuild, remodel and relocate secondary schools, special schools and education support centres across the county, beginning in Stevenage in early 2011.

The committee had deferred making a decision on the relocation in January in order to assess the suitability of St Nicholas Park in Stevenage as a potential site for the school.
