A COLLEGE has been given permission to build a new construction skills centre.

City College Brighton and Hove will create a purpose-built facility for teaching electrician and plumbing skills, carpentry, painting and decorating, brickwork and plastering.

The regeneration of the site at the college’s Wilson Avenue campus will also see the creation of a 62-space car park.

The plans were approved by the Brighton and Hove City Council planning committee.
