Plans for a £150 million project to build a new educational institute and university centre in Grimsby have been given the green light by North East Lincolnshire Council.
The five-storey building at Nuns Corner will increase the size of the existing college by 13,000 sq m to 50,000 sq m.
It would host plumbing and electrical workshops, sports and leisure facilities, engineering workshops, a theatre, a refectory, children’s nursery and a flood-lit sports pitch.
Car parking facilities would also be expanded.
Original plans for two 15m wind turbines to power the centre were withdrawn after opposition from residents.
Construction is due to start in February and will take three years.
