SHIPLAKE College wants to build a new boathouse.

The school has submitted plans to South Oxfordshire District Council to erect the building in a former quarry beside the River Thames.

A design and access statement prepared by Henley architects Nichols Brown Webber says: “The proposal is to remove nine buildings/structures within the ‘old quarry’ are a and to replace them with one boathouse building for use as storage, a workshop, a fitness area and an archery centre and a Portakabin to accommodate a WC block with associated buried septic tank.

“The existing Victorian boathouse and launch shed are to remain on site. The remainder of the site will continue to be used for storing boat trailers and sailing dinghies.”
