News: Plans for Rotherham college redevelopment taking shape


Plans for a redeveloped town centre campus for Rotherham College of Arts and Technology are well underway. The Rotherham project is likely to cost in the region of £65million and the college is seeking planning permission for an iconic and architecturally inspiring building set high above the town centre. The scheme involves the demolition of the Clifton and Eastwood Buildings and the closure of Morpeth Street to create a unified development to the Howard Building that is not included in the re-development proposals. The college has been working in association with architects Bond Bryan and property consultants GVA Grimley. College principal, George Trow said: “Our architects now have the task of creating a college building that meets the exacting demands for learning in the future and creates a building to inspire and to be proud of. “We have a body of staff with great expertise and knowledge and we are delighted to be in a position to provide the very latest facilities and resources to enable them to deliver first class learning opportunities in Rotherham”. Outline plans are expected to be submitted soon and the college hopes the campus will be fully operational in 2013/14.
