In common with many local authorities, especially in London, Hillingdon needs to create more primaryschool places to meet growing demand. This is mainly due to the fact that, in recent years, more children have been born in the borough. However, there are other factors that affect demand for school places, such as new housing developments and the number of families moving into and leaving the borough. You may know that some schools have already expanded, either on a permanent or temporary basis but more school places are needed. Therefore, we are proposing to expand more primaryschools. These expansions would be permanent.
