An East Yorkshire college has been given permission to start work on the 17m redevelopment of its main campus in Bridlington.

East Riding College's existing campus on St Mary's Walk is to be knocked down and replaced with a new two-storey building with 44 teaching rooms.

The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) has agreed to fund the scheme after the college won planning permission.

The new campus is expected to be completed in the summer of 2009.

It will be built on the open space in front of the existing building.

John Doris, the college's director of resources, said: "We're absolutely delighted the LSC has confirmed the funding for this existing project.

"This new campus will provide state-of-the-art facilities to ensure people living in the resort and the surrounding area can learn the skills they need for a successful career."
