Noisy children in a school? Who would have thought it.

If you don't like living near a school, either put up with the hour a day or move. Simple.

We were initially concerned about moving close to a school when we were house hunting. Then we realised - we're at work all day, so it wouldn't affect us in the slightest. In any event, listening to the sound of small children having fun isn't exactly the worst noise you could be forced to listen to. Miserable old buggers.

It nays new nursery building, and believe it or not, kids at nursery spend a lot more than an hour playing outside when the weather is fine, plus it wasn't there when they moved in so have every right to object.

Exactly Brian Jones, well said.

I thought Bolton was supposed to be the friendliest town in Britain. So friendly we moan about kids enjoying themselves!

Most of those residents have been there as long as the school. A nursery wont make much difference to the noise..although they should do something about the parking for that school. Its absolutely diabolical. Yes I know its half an hour twice a day but its an accident waiting to happen..msny a time that road is gridlocked because of peoples careless parking..they dont give a s..t

I see it has been approved, and it says that it is a replacement and not additional as some of us was led to believe.
Ah well, tough booby as they say.

Never thought I'd say this but it seems the council have used their common sense today. How ridiculous that an INFANT school has to fight to keep a climbing frame because (shock, horror) children climb on it. As for the miserable people complaining about noisy toddlers I would hate to think how boring and dull your childhood was if you weren't also once a toddler who was allowed to play and learn.
