PLANS to build 235 homes on a former high school site have been earmarked for approval on Tuesday.

Wombwell High School, which closed in 2012 when it merged with Foulstone to form Netherwood, is at the centre of a bid from Premier Construction Group.

The application consists of 34 two-bedroom, 126 three-bedroom and 75 four-bedroom properties.

Two hectares of the site will be retained for a new primary school and £2m will be secured from the developer for loss of amenity if it’s given the green light, a report revealed.
