Outline planning permission has also been granted for a £10 million housing development on the same site, which will be sold to support the college’s redevelopment.

The 29 homes for sale and 15 affordable units, are arranged in a mixture of studios, apartments and townhouses in two separate blocks either side of a new pedestrian route named New Marlborough Street that will be run through the city block.
