LESOCO DEVELOPMENT EXHIBITION
Thursday 26 September

LeSoCo is keen to invest in the Waterloo campus and aims to
rejuvenate and enhance the provision of education facilities
available. In keeping with this aspiration, emerging
development proposals are to extend and redevelop the campus
with new and refurbished education floorspace over
predominantly 5 and 6 storey buildings. To assist in
funding, it is proposed that the land in the southern and
western parts of the site be sold for residential
development. Following an initial public consultation
exercise in July, LeSoCo would like to re-consult local
residents and businesses on the revised scheme before a
planning application is submitted to Council later this
year. Another public exhibition has therefore been organised
to allow people to drop in, review the plans and provide
comments. If you are unable to attend the event, the
exhibition will remain publicly available in the college
campus during regular opening hours until 3 October and a
digital copy of the exhibition will be uploaded to
www.lesoco.ac.uk A comments box will also be available to
collect your feedback. For further information, or to
