A PUBLIC meeting to discuss controversial plans for a security fence to be built round a school playing field will be held this month.The meeting to discuss the proposals at Norwood School in Gunthorpe Road, Peterborough, will be held on Monday, January 25 from 7pm inside the school.

Residents living near the school, along with parents and carers are invited to attend the meeting to discuss the replacement of the current wooden fence which borders the school.

People who attend the meeting will be asked to give their views on the type of fence proposed, including the style and size, and its location.

Jonathan Lewis, Peterborough City Council's assistant director for resources, commissioning and performance within children's services, said: "Norwood Primary School is unique in Peterborough in not having a full size boundary fence around its playing field. It is necessary for the school to have a fence as in the past horses have been found roaming the playing field and broken glass and dog faeces are regularly found."
