A ROW over plans to build a new sports hall at Fernhill secondary school, Farnborough, has been settled.

Rushmoor Council planners objected to the initial scheme on the grounds that it would cause increased noise and disturbance for nearby residents.

Last week they gave the plan their blessing after agreeing that Hampshire County Council had altered the scheme to their satisfaction. The large hall has now been sited as close as possible to the school to prevent it being an eyesore to people living in Chapel Lane.

Extra car parking has also been provided to ease the pressure on nearby roads when the hall is being used in the evenings.
