A supermarket is hoping to transform a secondary school campus.

The Sainsbury’s chain is proposing to regenerate Stantonbury Campus – not only the local shopping centre, but also the school buildings.

Plans for a new local centre, shops, pharmacy, post office, health centre, community centre and of course a Sainbury’s supermarket are to be presented to the public.

The land at the north of Stantonbury Campus, which includes some of the school buildings most in need of replacement, is proposed to be included in the new centre.

It is intended that the redevelopment would generate funding to provide state-of-theart school facilities in brand new buildings elsewhere on the site.

Mark Wasserberg, school principal, said “We now have a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform the facilities of Stantonbury Campus to offer a state-of-the-art education for the 21st Century.

Working with Sainsbury’s will enable us to vastly enhance facilities, raise educational standards and improve security for our students as well as opening up educational and social facilities for the wider community.”

MP Mark Lancaster, who has been campaigning for better facilities, said: “I’m pleased that finally Sainsbury’s are engaging with Stantonbury residents as it is absolutely vital that local people should have a full say in how this project proceeds.”

The company says it will not submit planning application until the public has been consulted.

Exhibitions will take place at the leisure centre on November 3 (5pm to 9pm), November 4 (5pm to 9pm) and November 7 (9am to 1pm).
