However, the Officer's report for the Committee LINK does not go into any detail about air pollution, referring instead to a far more general reference back in 2015 when outline planning permission was given and focusing on the impact of demolition and construction rather than children's daily exposure to pollution.
They suggest that the playground will be protected from air pollution by the school building, although a rooftop multi use games area (MUGA) is planned as well as a rooftop learning area. The playground itself is very small for a 630 pupil school.

Quite a test for the scrutiny powers of the new Planning Committee.
