Anyone wishing to see the plans can visit the Barnstaple campus campus next month.

PETROC will be hosting a two-day public consultation event over a £10.8million redevelopment to its Barnstaple campus.

In November the Gazette revealed the college had secured the funding to create two bespoke facilities for tourism, lifestyle, engineering and manufacturing students.

“We recognise and value the importance of consulting and communicating with the community to ensure Petroc meets its strategic priorities,” said Neil Hookway, Director for Resources.

“The public consultation will give people the opportunity to talk to us about the project and share their views and ideas.”

If plans are approved by North Devon Council, building work is due to be completed on the project by 2015.

Anyone wishing to see the plans and ask questions can come along to the campus at Sticklepath Hill for the two day consultation.

Events will be held from 10am until 8pm on Friday, March 21, and 10am until 4.30pm on Saturday, March 22.
