NORTHBROOK College has been given planning permission for phase two of a multi-million pound redevelopment of its Broadwater campus.

Worthing Borough Council approved the plan last week, allowing the second phase of the development to start. It follows the initial stage of work at the further education college in Broadwater Road which began in February and is now completed.

The college’s goal with the two-part project is to upgrade facilities, getting rid of its ageing Nissen-hut style buildings and replacing them with state-of-the-art facilities.

So far, the redevelopment has been met with praise by staff and students, along with the community and councillors.

Northbrook principal Sue Dare said: “I am delighted that Worthing Borough Council have approved the phase two plans and I look forward to the building work commencing in the very near future.

“The project is a testament to the defining role that skills are playing in the country’s recovery from downturn, with investment in local education and training poised to help drive economic growth in the area.

“Worthing will benefit from an outstanding centre for vocational education.”
