Bridgwater College all-clear for £2.5million agriculture project in Cannington
A PROJECT to transform learning for Bridgwater College agriculture students has been given the go-ahead.
In the summer, the college submitted a planning application, which has now been approved by Sedgemoor District Council, for a teaching unit and biosecurity centre at Rodway Farm at Cannington.
The teaching building is designed to make it much easier for students to be taught on site and to allow them to take part in more practical tasks.
The bio-security building will help prevent the spread of disease around the campus.
The project could cost between £2.5million and £3million, and should be completed by the start of the September 2014 academic term.
When the plans were first submitted, Steve Jones, the college's farms manager, said they formed part of a drive to bring on the next generation of agricultural workers.
The project also won the backing of Cannington Parish Council, who said it represented a “vast improvement on the existing temporary buildings”.
