Brookmans Park college unveils further building plans

FURTHER plans for the redevelopment of the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in Brookmans Park have been unveiled.

As previously reported in the Welwyn Hatfield Times, proposals for a new teaching and research centre at the RVC’s Hawkshead Lane campus are currently awaiting final approval from Communities Secretary John Denham.

And now, bosses at the college have asked Welwyn Hatfield Council for permission to pull down and replace one of its halls of residence.

If approved, the application would see Northumberland Hall razed to the ground and replaced with a building containing 191 student bedrooms and a refectory.

Under the plans, a swimming pool, squash courts and maintenance buildings would also be demolished.
