A special school for kids on the autistic spectrum in Erith has received planning permission for a major expansion and refurbishment.

Planning permission has been granted for work to begin on the former Colyers School site, which will cater for students currently attending Woodside School in Halt Robin Road, Belvedere.

It will provide up to 120 pupil places for youngsters, with the possibility to expand capacity further in the future.

Facilities will include parking provision, a secure play area and a multi-purpose sports hall.

Cllr John Fuller said: “I am delighted that this scheme has got the go ahead. I look forward to the work progressing and welcoming the first pupils through the door.”

Work is expected to begin next month with the school reopening for the start of the 2013 academic year.
