An Essex school has been given the all-clear to go ahead and start building a brand new building designed specifically for children with autism. Blenheim Primary and Nursery School can begin working on the new facility after Southend-on-Sea Council approved plans.
Blenheim Primary and Nursery, on School Way in Leigh-on-Sea, submitted a planning application for the new 'Autism Resource Base (ARB)' towards the end of June 2022 and have recently been given the greenlight by council officers.
Within plans submitted to the local council, the new building will include a foyer welcome area, a learning space, two breakout rooms, an office space and two toilets. There will be some changes to the tarmac paths and gates in the nearby vicinity of the structure.
