A school is set to build a £170,000 special education needs teaching block.
Bradfields Academy, Chatham, has submitted plans to Medway Council to replace an existing building which is in a "state of disrepair".
The Churchill Avenue school is a specialist academy which caters for students who experience complex learning disabilities and difficulties.
Its current mobile unit is used as a therapy hub and classroom.
However, the site has become dilapidated in recent years and is now in urgent need of replacement.
Plans outline provisions for new handrails, entrances, external cladding, pathways and windows.
The current block will be demolished and a new one erected if the application is approved.
It will be able to house up to 12 pupils at a time for lessons, while also being used as a one-to-one therapy outlet.
The school successfully applied to Medway Council and The Clothworkers Foundation for capital grants to fund the project.
The local authority are currently reviewing the application.
