PROPOSALS have been submitted to extend a Welsh language school in the county.
Pembrokeshire County Council has received proposals to build additional teaching facilities at Ysgol Caer Elen in Haverfordwest.
The construction is expected to provide four classrooms with storage and unisex toilets.
The application states that the proposal will introduce a simple one-storey modular building and will be located within the school grounds.
The building will be detached from the main school, intended to be located at the western end of the school site.
The request reads: ‘The proposal will provide much needed additional welfare and classroom facilities to meet the needs of the comprehensive school.
“The proposed teaching block is considered to be a suitable additional facility to the existing community facility which is located on the boundary of Haverfordwest settlement boundaries.
“Furthermore, it is believed that the development would have an acceptable impact on the visual amenities of the area, the residential amenities of neighboring properties, road safety and drainage and as such we hope you will see fit to recommend the approval.”
In March, Ysgol Caer Elen received £2.5million in government funding to help develop the Welsh language.
The project was to fund an additional 60 Welsh language places for children in the long-term school.
