January 2014  

NEW SCHOOL BUILDING FOR CALDICOT
Monmouthshire County Council confirmed that £31 million would be spent on buildings at Caldicot comprehensive school plus £3.9 million for refurbishing feeder primary schools. Some of the funding would be provided by the Welsh Government under the 21st century schools programme.

PLANS FOR HOUSING
Monmouthshire Housing Association applied for planning permission to demolish the old West End Primary School, which closed in 2012, to build 18 flats and five houses.

MIXED FORTUNES FOR SCHOOLS
Welsh schools inspectorate Estyn gave widely differing assessments of two Caldicot schools following inspections.  While the comprehensive school was graded “good”, Dewstow School was judged to be “in need of significant improvement”.

NEW MEETING AREA
Monmouthshire County Council granted planning permission to Caldicot town council for the conversion of a compound building in King George V Playing fields to be turned into a meeting area.

HOUSE PRICE WATCH
The cheapest house advertised in the local press for sale in Caldicot at the end of January 2014 was a three bedroom semi-detached property at £142,950. The most expensive was a five bedroom detached property at £424,950.
