BREAKING NEWS: Could Central College Be Pulling Out Of The Arthur Mee Centre In Stapleford ?
The Arthur Mee Centre in Stapleford is currently occupied by Central College, but could this be about to change?
Current rumours are that Central College are going to leave the Stapleford site.
Councillor Richard MacRae contacted Central College and asked them if there is a possibility of them leaving and you can find the reply from them below.
“You will have heard about our ambitions for a new Skills Hub campus in the city centre. We’re working on plans for this at the moment and undoubtedly, in order to make this a reality, we will be disposing of old and outdated campus buildings, ensuring that we only keep and continue to invest in buildings that meet our current and future needs and that are economical to run. Therefore over time we do expect that some of our existing buildings will close in order to make way for the Skills Hub but we’re someway off this yet.”
The Stapleford Councillor said:
“It would be a shame if this does happen as it would then leave the building empty and I fear for the future of this historic building”
“The Students and Staff who use The Arthur Mee Centre also spend money in the shops in Stapleford, it would be a sad day if Central College pull out of Stapleford”
Central College also said:
“We don’t have any information on specific site closures at the moment.”
We are keeping a close eye on this and if we receive any further information we will of course let you know.
