An organisation which supports children with a lifelong illness affecting their ability to move hopes to expand its site and open a new school.

The London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy (LCCCP), in Muswell Hill, is exhibiting the plans for the proposed development to the public as part of the consultation process.

Its new school would be located in the former Green Man pub, in Muswell Hill Road, which will be refurbished and extended.

The school will be twice the size of the centre’s existing premises and would allow it to provide education for older children, which families of the current students are keen to see happen.

To help to pay for the development the charity proposes to build houses and apartments on the site of the existing LCCCP building and car park.

The benefits of the new site include being able to support more children and families, have more space for specialist equipment and services and be able to develop educational facilities for older children.

Marc Crank, the organisation’s chief executive, said he wants to hear from as many residents as possible.

He said: “We have long since outgrown our current premises, which were built 50 years ago, and a new school will enable us to support more local children and families.

We are very keen to hear what local residents think of the plans before we submit a planning application and we hope as many residents as possible are able to attend our public exhibition to see the plans and meet our team.”

The plans will be at the centre in Muswell Hill on Friday June 28 from 3pm to 8pm and Saturday June 29 from 10am to 2pm.
