2nd October 2009 at 01:00

Plans for an ambitious pound;25 million education village in Romford, Essex, have been given the green light. The campus in Harold Hill will include a nursery, primary school, special school, academy and a college. There will also be modern sports facilities.

The site already houses three schools, which would be overhauled under the plan approved by Havering Council.

Michael White, council leader, said: "We are aiming to develop a centre for learning that will provide a clear education path from childhood right through to adult learning and training for skills in the workplace."

The local authority has given outline planning permission to the project. It now has to be passed to the Government Office for London and the Mayor of London for consideration. DM.
