The request was successful.

Dear Department for Education

On 12 September 2017, schools minister Nick Gibb told MP Clive Efford that the Department for Education exchanged contracts to purchase the proposed permanent site of the International Academy of Greenwich, the Bowring Sports Club Ground, in December 2015. Completion would take place when planning permission was approved.

I should be grateful if you could let me know the compensation payable to the vendor of the site now that the academy free school is to be closed following rejection of planning permission.

If, in the meantime, the DfE did complete the purchase of Bowring, I should be grateful if you could let me know the purchase price and what the DfE intends to do with the land.

Yours faithfully,

J Downs
