Received: 11/12/2019

Respondent: Buckingham Town Council

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Although "existing secondary schools" could be interpreted to include grammar schools, there should be clear provision for the Royal Latin School, (as the site will be in its catchment area for any suitably qualified secondary pupils), should a new secondary school be provided on site as this would seem to negate a financial contribution towards existing secondary schools, and thus with the increased number of houses on this site, there could be a significant number of suitably qualified pupils seeking a place at the local grammar school, but without any financial provision to the school.

Change suggested by respondent:

Provision for financial contribution to the Royal Latin Grammar School in the event that a secondary school is provided on site.
