Upcoming Planning Application
We are excited to let you know that a planning application will soon be submitted for the redevelopment of part of the College. Some of the older buildings are being replaced and will be demolished once a new building has been built.
A new 4 storey building is proposed for the existing college car park, and the car parking will be relocated to the western side of the site where the all-weather pitch is currently located. The all-weather pitch will be repositioned to accommodate the relocated car parking.
The existing buildings to be demolished are the prefabricated buildings from the 1960s. In their place, the site will have a new external social area and a small infill building that will unify the buildings across the site in a landscaped setting.
This redevelopment of the College is funded by the Department for Education as part of their School Rebuilding Programme. Galliford Try has been selected by the Department for Education to design and build the new building. Galliford Try will be submitting the planning application in September 2021. Once the application has been submitted it will be available to view and comment on online via Kirklees Council’s planning portal: https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/planning-applications/search-for-planningapplications/default.aspx
