As a parent of a child affected by all of these proposals I still have many questions which remain unanswered in relation to this.
The most important of which is why are these proposals still going forward when in December of this year there is to be a potential boundary change to be agreed by government which will mean that Suffolk County Council could no longer exist?
According to the council's document there is a likelihood that funds of up to £600m will be available for the Building Schools for the Future project.
You may also want to watch:
Why has this decision-making process not been put on hold until after this time thereby enabling those within the new boundary to reconsider the options available in relation to their new future?
It appears that government, nor it's ministers, have the power to step in and stop this process unless the council are acting illegally or in a manner deemed to be unfit.
- 1 New operator to be unveiled for Lowestoft pavilion regeneration

- 4 Man who died after a medical episode in Hopton identified
- 5 Diversions in place as fibre cable works continue in Lowestoft
- 6 Severe delays on A146 after two-vehicle crash
- 7 Backlash against raw sewage vote as local hotspots revealed
- 8 Families urged to lock their sheds after string of burglaries

- 10 Appeal to identify man, around 75, who died in medical episode
Let us hope, and pray, that in March, when the school organisational review goes to government for its agreement that somebody does just that.
