The South Gloucestershire Liberal Democrats have publicly stated their ambition to protect the historic old school site in Frenchay from potential development. Following the previous Conservative administration's attempts to sell the site, the Liberal Democrats are leading the charge to safeguard the cherished community space and promote its long-term use for the benefit of local residents.
With a firm commitment to preserving local heritage and nurturing community bonds, South Gloucestershire Liberal Democrats are calling on South Gloucestershire Council to secure the long term use of the site for local residents. Recognizing its historical significance and potential for enriching the lives of residents, the Liberal Democrats are advocating for an alternative approach that aligns with the values and priorities of the local community.
South Gloucestershire Council Property Services has pledged its support to the cause by planning to collaborate closely with the local residents association. Their joint effort aims to secure a long-term lease for the old school site, ensuring that it remains a valuable asset accessible to the community for years to come.
Councillor Raj Sood expressed his approval of the move, saying:
"I welcome my party’s proactive stance in championing the preservation of the old school site in Frenchay. This decision reflects our commitment to safeguarding our shared history and creating spaces that contribute positively to our community's well-being."
The Liberal Democrats campaign is a testament to their dedication to local concerns and their determination to stand up for the interests of local residents. By advocating for the preservation of the old school site and pushing for its continued community-focused use, they are setting a precedent for responsible governance that values community heritage and aspirations.
As South Gloucestershire Council Property Services and the local residents association work together to chart a course for the site’s future, the collective vision of a vibrant, connected, and empowered Frenchay community comes into sharper focus.
