Plans for a new public elementary school in north Oakville continue to move forward.

At a Planning and Development meeting on Monday (July 11), Oakville Town Council voted to approve zoning changes to allow for construction of the school, currently designated Oakville NE #3 elementary school.

The new school, which will be located at the northeast corner of Wheat Bloom Drive and John McKay Blvd., will be able to accommodate up to 1,202 students with daycares spaces for a maximum of 88 children.

The three-storey building will include 39 classrooms, 18 portables, up to 157 parking spots, six small bus or seven car queuing spaces along with 20 bicycle paring spaces.

Construction of the school, which will help serve a fast-growing area of north Oakville, is expected to begin this summer and be ready for the opening of the 2023-24 school year.

The provincial government announced $20.8 million in funding back in December 2021 to help build the Halton District School Board school.
