Objections over 'greenbelt school' in west Christchurch

Hundreds of residents have objected to proposals to build a new primary school in Dorset on greenbelt land.

Dorset County Council is proposing the west Christchurch school be built by 2017 and says the proposed site on Marsh Lane is the only option.

Ninety pupils in the area are currently being taught in temporary classrooms within a secondary school.

However, residents have said Marsh Lane is unsuitable.
