Black Country University Technical College Walsall move

New site for Black Country University Technical College
The proposed new site is currently not being used

Plans to relocate a college to a new site at a cost of about £6m have been announced.

Black Country University Technical College (BCUTC) said moving to Portland Street in central Walsall would "increase accessibility for students".

Students would transfer from the current site in Vernon Way, Bloxwich, from April 2016 under the proposals.

A planning application was expected to be submitted to Walsall Council later this year, BCUTC said.

The proposed new site next to one of the college's sponsors, Walsall College, includes former workshops but is not currently being used.
