AN application by Ashby School to demolish existing changing facilities and build a new changing pavilion has been granted.
North West Leicestershire District Council approved the application which will see a new and improved single storey changing facility built at the school in Nottingham Road.
The current building is used for both lessons at the school and community groups and teams at the weekend.
In the application the school said that the current facilities were of poor quality and meant it could not provide adequate facilities for both male and female pupils to the required ratio.
An assessment of the drainage outfalls was required and following this planning permission was granted to the school by the council.
