FENLAND students got another boost today when plans were unveiled for a state of the art redevelopment of Peterborough Regional College.
It means students from March, Wisbech, Chatteris and Whittlesey will soon be able to choose from a new and improve College of West Anglia or a new and improved Peterborough College to study.
Following a recent planning committee meeting, Peterborough has been granted permission for the re-development of the current site.
The college has been busy in recent months liaising with external bodies, in particular the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) who have supported the proposals for the ambitious project. The development, thought to be the largest in the East of England, will provide a community of bespoke education and skills training facilities for school-leavers, the local community and businesses alike.

Don Lawson, Principal of Peterborough Regional College added: "This investment in the College's infrastructure will support the future development of Peterborough through providing the very best training facilities needed for a skilled local workforce. The new build will not only provide a state-of-the-art facility for local students and businesses, but will also complement the planned University Centre, creating a genuine lifelong learning campus in Peterborough."
The new further education complex will be re-developed on the existing site and will provide a modern, cutting-edge environment for up to 20,000 students per year, packed with the latest industry-standard equipment and resources.
