West Notts college £11m extension is approved

An £11m expansion to a Nottinghamshire college has been approved.

The building at Vision West Notts - the new name for West Notts College - in Mansfield, will provide 4,000 sq m (43,000 sq ft) of additional teaching and learning space.

It will also have a restaurant and beauty salon which will open to the public to give students practical commercial experience.

Work is expected to start in January, with the building open in early 2013.

The three-story building on Derby Road, which will take space currently used for car parking, is part of the college's wider £24m development.
