Surrey County Council has submitted a planning application for the re-location of Reigate Priory Junior School, from its current building to a new purpose-built setting at Woodhatch Place, off Cockshot Hill in Reigate.
The proposed 600 place school building, for junior school children aged 7 to 11, would be the first operationally Net Zero Carbon school in Surrey and will bring us another step closer to achieving a greener future for the county.
UPDATE: the planning application for the re-location of Reigate Priory School is now live.
Details of the planning application can be found on Surrey County Council's planning website. The reference for the application is: SCC Ref 2022/0091, please insert this into the 'our reference' box.
Neighbour notification will be carried out in accordance with Surrey County Council's adopted procedures, but comments are welcome from anybody with an interest in the proposal.

We put together some answers to frequently asked questions following our public consultation.
What happens next?
Surrey County Council's Regulation 3 planning team will consult with neighbours affected by the proposals. They will also consult with 'statutory bodies' (e.g., Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, The Environment Agency etc.).
Anyone can comment and 21 days are usually allowed for comments to be received. For more information please see our webpage: Have your say on planning applications.
The application is then passed to a planning officer. They will consider factors such as policy, location, neighbour impact, consultee comments, design and wider impact. This process takes between 8 and 16 weeks, depending on application type. The planning officer will then write a report recommending approval or refusal of the application.
The final decision will be made by Surrey County Council's Planning and Regulatory Committee, made up of elected councillors.
