College campuses to close for new development

Sandish Shoker

BBC News Online

We told you earlier about plans to close Central College's Beeston site following a merger with New College Nottingham (NCN).

About 500 students are based at the site in High Road and they'll move to a new huge base which is going to be built on wasteland off Canal Street, behind the Nottingham Contemporary art gallery.

A grant of £30m was awarded by the government three years ago for the project but another £40m is still needed so it's hoped the closure and sales of existing sites will bring in more funds.
