<b>Northampton College’s ambitious Booth Lane/Lower Mounts project is one of eight Capital Funding programmes to be given the go ahead by the national Learning & Skills Council (LSC).</b>

The College has been waiting for final approval since December 2008, when the LSC deferred all decisions on Capital Funding applications.

Following its review, the Council yesterday approved the plans which will lead to the complete demolition and rebuild of the Booth Lane campus and a substantial extension of the Lower Mounts site by the addition of a new 3000 sq. m. building.

Len Closs, Principal said, ‘We are delighted to have received the approval necessary to progress to the building stage at Booth Lane and Lower Mounts. The transformation will enable us to provide unparalleled educational facilities of the highest quality for Northamptonshire’s learners, staff, employers and the local community. The plan now is immediately to get together with LSC officers and our consultants to finalise details and get back on track with work on site. I am hopeful that construction will start in the very near future.’

Northampton College’s plans in Daventry as part of the Daventry Learning Partnership (DLP) are at the earlier Application in Principle stage. A decision about this project is still under consideration by the LSC.
