A new car park at Crackley Hall School has been approved despite concerns from residents over safety.

Warwick District Council planners approved the plan for a new parking area and playground at the Coventry Road site.

The car park will be build on the existing playground across from Fennyland Lane.

It will serve Princethorpe College and increase access to the school buildings.

The decision was set back for planners to visit the site after 10 letters of objection were received from residents in the adjacent lane.

Complaints came in that the site was not appropriate for such a development and neighbours called for the move to be turned down.

Kenilworth Town Council did not object to the proposals, but asked for reassurance over safety given the close proximity of cars to the play area.
