Ladybird roof will be spotted after go-ahead for extension
Posted on August 13, 2009
A planned new classroom and library area at Eaton Bray Lower School has been given the thumbs up.
The extension, which is needed to cope with an increase in the number of pupils, was given the go-ahead at a meeting on Central Bedfordshire Council's development management committee on Wednesday.
The increase has been linked to the success of the school's new nursery building. The roof design of the extension is based on a ladybird symbol widely associated with books and children's learning and would be constructed from moulded glass fibre and reinforced plastics, domed and coloured red with black spots.
The parish council said they had no objections to the extension in principle but considered the design "architecturally inappropriate".
