in Caldicot have responded to Monmouthshire County Council's plans to
close Green Lane Junior School by demanding that a new school be built
on the site. Following a "strategic review" the council proposes an expansion
of Sandy Lane and West End infant schools to cater for the displaced children.
This was rejected by a number of parents at a 200 strong consultation
meeting. At the meeting, Phil Cooke, Director of Education, pointed out
that a new primary school would cost £3 million.
