GODMANCHESTER-based planning consultancy John Martin and Associates has been awarded the contract to provide professional planning advice as part of the delivery of Cambridgeshire County Council's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project in north Cambridgeshire.
Building Schools for the Future is a national 15-year programme to raise educational achievement by rebuilding and upgrading schools to make them better places to learn in and to provide additional facilities for communities.
The Fenland area was chosen for the first tranche of the programme, with schools in March and Wisbech being the initial pilot schemes, followed by schools in Whittlesey and Chatteris.
It is expected that construction work will start on these schools in 2010.
