I JUST felt that I should email you about the need for primary schools in the Hayes area.

After observing the amount of land being set aside for housing in the southern part of the borough, especially in the Hayes area, I fail to understand the logic of selling the former Botwell Leisure Centre for housing.

The education department has pointed out that there is a need for 19 new forms, of which 18 are in the southern part of the borough.

So my question is: Will Hillingdon Council sell the Botwell Leisure Centre in order to purchase private land for educational use?

I am aware that you have previously covered this story, but I felt that the people of Hayes should be made aware about the scale of the need for a primary school. And the fact that there is no other land available.
