Plans to create 210 new school places in Epsom following a "big rise in demand" have been unveiled by the county council.

It said the proposals would boost capacity at St Martin's Infant School by 90 places and add another 120 at the junior school on the same site.

Councillor Linda Kemeny said the scheme was part of a programme to create up to 16,000 places over the next decade.

The council will consider the plans on Tuesday.

Ms Kemeny, cabinet education spokesman, said the authority needed to meet a surge in demand for places after a 20% rise in birth rates.

She said the council had experienced "a big rise in demand for places".
