Southwell Town Council raises no objection to development of Nottingham Trent University's Brackenhurst campus
Multiple applications for changes at a university campus have met with no objections from a council.
Southwell Town Council gave no objection to the construction of a new Skills Centre, including new specialist laboratory spaces and enterprise hub, with supporting rooms on land off Crink Lane at the Nottingham Trent University Brackenhurst Campus.
The proposal aims to create a learning space for students to study low carbon food production and sustainable land management.
It is proposed to be a predominantly brickwork structure, in keeping with buildings in the wider area.
The council also supported a proposal to carry out repairs and refurbishment of a1960's workshops block on the campus.
Proposed work includes removal of an asbestos roof, to be replaced with grey-green metal and replacement of windows and doors.
The campus' Lyth building could soon be a wedding venue, as the council gave no objections to a proposed new use of the building.
The university's proposal suggests the use would encourge the continued use of the building outside of term time, with the ability to accommodate up to 120 day guests and 200 evening guests.
Weddings would utilise the building's reception, refectory, lecture theatre and mezzanine and only be held on Saturdays.
All three proposals were unanimously supported by the town council's planning committee.
