PARENTS and residents will have the chance to discuss proposals to build a centre for troubled teenagers on a Gosport primary school site tomorrow evening.

A consultation is under way over a bid by Hampshire County Council to move Quayside Education Centre to Woodcot Primary – which opponents fear could put youngsters at risk and cause disruption in the area.

More than 300 people have already signed a petition to say ‘no’ to the move.

Ali Taylor, 41, whose eight-year-old daughter attends Woodcot, said: ‘We are prepared to listen, but we need some answers and some honesty.

‘Until a week ago many of us just thought there was going to be a building for kids going up in the playground.

‘But we’ve done our own research and the picture is a very different one, and as parents we have genuine concerns.’
