In December 2013 the council approved the City College planning application to substantially redevelop the site. Planning papers can be found on the council website HERE – Application number: BH2013/01600
Whilst the City College welcomed this news and views the development as key in the future of the college and of benefit to local regeneration, it was viewed with less excitement by the North Laine Community Association who were worried about potentially negative impacts on the area as a result of this development.
The agreement is now in place however, this proposal is expected to move forward, and more details will be placed here over time.
Community Engagement Group
6th March 2014: The College are in process of setting up a community engagement group to provide good communication between the College and the trading and residential community. Hopefully this will help to minimise disruption and disturbance during the various building and demolition phases.
