An elite private school in Sydney’s eastern suburbs has been taken to court by one of its multimillionaire neighbours over a plan to increase its enrolment cap by 400.

The Scots College, in Bellevue Hill, was granted approval in March this year from a planning panel to officially boost the number of students permitted at the school from 1,120 to 1,520.

Under the plan, the $33,000-a-year school intends to demolish then upgrade a set of tennis courts and construct an underground 80-car capacity carpark.

But the proposal is under threat after businessman Ian Joye launched legal action in the Land and Environment Court to have Eastern Local Planning Panel’s decision overturned, the Daily Telegraph reports.
