Disposal or change of use of former school playing fields

Public Notice consultation

Following the relocation of Yarmouth CE Primary School to a new site the Isle of Wight Council is seeking to dispose of 0.65 hectares of land at the former Yarmouth CE Primary School site, Mill Road, Yarmouth, Isle of Wight PO41 0RA.

Why your views matter and how to comment

The Council does not believe that there are any viable alternative education uses for the former the Yarmouth CE Primary School land. Local Schools do not have a need for additional playing field provision. Before continuing with the disposal, the Council wishes to consult the local community.

Start of consultation: Friday 20 October 2023
