Public meeting on the future of three Dunstable Middle Schools.

Are you a parent affected by the proposals that could see up to three (or none) middle schools being closed in Dunstable? If so, you are encouraged to attend a public meeting at the Grove Theatre on May 7th.

Parents, carers and other interested parties are invited to attend a meeting of the council’s Children’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee to listen and take part in the committee’s consideration of a report on the proposed closure of Ashton VA, Brewers Hill and Streetfield Middle Schools that will eventually be considered by the Council’s Executive on the 27th May. The public meeting is taking place at the Grove Theatre on 7 May, starting at 7pm.

At the meeting the committee will consider a detailed report covering the outcomes of the three consultations, previous public meetings as well as other relevant factors relating to the future of the schools. The report is available to view on Central Beds Council website The report, including recommendations from the committee will then be considered by the council’s Executive on 27 May.

As with all council meetings, everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to speak at the meeting you will need to register to do so before the start of the meeting. Please contact the scrutiny team on 0300 300 4634 or email for more information.

Houghton Regis' CBC Councillors (Lib Dems) David Jones, Rita Egan, Susan Goodchild, and Peter Williams are looking for your opinions.

Cllr Mark Versallion, Executive Member for Children’s Services, said:

"This is a very important and difficult decision that we are faced with as something has to change now for these three schools. I really do encourage everyone, particularly parents and teachers to come along to this meeting. Everything we are told will get taken into consideration before any decisions are made.”
