OPPOSITION to the proposed expansion of Emmanuel School in Mill Lane is rapidly mounting as the primary enters the second consultation phase.
Residents against the West Hampstead school doubling its size by constructing a new building on the Mill Lane Open Space and 152 to 158 Mill Lane claim the plan is totally wrong.
They have formed the Mill Lane Area Action Group and want governors and Camden Council to look at the Fortune Green play centre site for development.
More than 40 people attended the group's inaugural meeting to air their concerns about the proposed development.

Founder James Rubinstein said: "There seems to be a poverty of imagination and the council is stuck on tram rails thinking only about the site they have got."
But chairman of governors John Ward said: "We do believe the Mill Lane site is the right one but we are not ruling out looking at other options. It is an education focus at the moment rather than a design focus although we have to look at this in part because doubling the size of the school will have an impact."
