Former school put on the market

A FORMER school in Nailsea, which has stood empty for more than a year, is now up for sale.

Four Oaks Primary School, in Silver Street, has been earmarked for 11 new homes by converting the existing school and building some new properties.

The site is just under an acre and is being sold by Colliers International.

Chris Dawson, of Colliers, said: “This is a landmark Victorian building and the planning permission being sought seeks to retain the essential character of the building while providing much-needed new homes in this popular location.

“A successful sale and planning permission would lift the uncertainty over the future of this prominent site.”

The original school building dates from 1844 and it operated as a school until August 2003. After it closed it was used as a training centre by North Somerset Council until 2011.

Plans, which were submitted after local consultation, envisage converting and extending the existing building to provide four homes with a new build home in matching style to the east.
