West Lindsay last night voted unanimously to give the go-ahead for a £13.5 million agricultural college at the Lincolnshire Showground.**
The 3,500 sq m centre will cater for hundreds of Bishop Burton College students from September 2015.
A halls of residence, laboratories, workshops, animal units and a working farm are included in the scheme.**
The college's local students currently attend courses at the Riseholme campus.**
But with its Riseholme lease ending in 2020, Bishop Burton wants to develop the project at the showground to deliver specialist courses in agriculture, engineering and equine studies.**
Building work could begin in September.**
