Green light for Binfield Learning Village

'Learning village' and 400 homes to be built on Bracknell's Blue Mountain golf course

Posted by Stephanie Broad | July 10, 2016 | Bricks & mortar

Blue Mountain is a development of 403 new homes in the Bracknell Forest area, including associated community facilities, public open space, sports and recreation facilities and an area of Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace (SANG). Recently approved by Bracknell Forest Council, it is one of the biggest projects the authority has ever seen. 

Binfield Learning Village is at the heart of the site with a sequence of buildings designed to accommodate the needs of children from four to 18. The £39 million project is expected to ease pressure in the north of Bracknell Forest by providing the area’s first two-form entry school.

School sports facilities will sit to the north of the buildings within the landscape, again providing excellent facilities for children of all ages to learn and play. 

Mace is project managing the design side of the learning village with Nicholas Hare Architects as the lead consultant. The school is expected to open in 2017.
