Longbridge £84m college plans approved

Plans for a new £84 million Bournville College in Longbridge, Birmingham have been given the green-light.

The college is part of the next phase of the £1 billion redevelopment of the former MG Rover works at Longbridge by regeneration specialist St Modwen and joint land owner Advantage West Midlands.

The existing Bournville College will be relocated from Northfield to Longbridge under the project, bringing all three of its campuses under a 250,000 sq ft purpose built premises.

St Modwen chief executive Bill Oliver said: “Receiving planning approval for Bournville College represents a significant milestone for the future of Longbridge with work now set to begin on a building which will form a key part of the new Longbridge Town Centre.”

Work is set to start this summer, subject to securing detailed planning approval from the Learning & Skills Council.  Completion is expected for the start of the new academic year in September 2011.
