"Vulnerable" primary school children could soon have a new log cabin to use in Wallington.

The Limes College in Sutton wants to build the cabin at Lindbergh Play Centre on the outskirts of the Roundshaw Estate.

An application for the centre in Lindbergh Road is set to be discussed by Sutton Council’s planning committee as the site lies within Metropolitan Open Land (MOL).

The land is protected as an area of landscape, recreation, nature conservation or scientific interest.

And a report going to the committee states: “It is considered that exceptional circumstances exist to allow the proposal to be granted, and the development would not have an impact on the openness of the MOL or the provision of public open space within the borough.”

If approved, the log cabin would be used by The Limes College – a pupil referral unit in Robin Hood Lane which takes in children that have been excluded from mainstream schools.

The report adds: “[The cabin will be used] to provide outdoor education through the Forest School’s initiative for vulnerable primary school children with special educational needs.”

The plans show that the single-storey log cabin would be timber clad, about 3 metres tall and 5 metres wide with a decking area at the front.

It would be built in an existing fenced off area to the west of the main building and opposite a wooded area.

Sutton’s planning committee will meet at the civic offices in St Nicholas Way from 7.30pm on Wednesday, October 10.
