New idea for college plan

So Ilkeston needs a new college and Bennerley school looks like closing. No problem, build the new college on Bennerley Avenue.

This would be a tremendous boost for the area, the old infants school at the top where I was a pupil in 1943 and 1944 could be retained to blend in nicely with the area as it always has. There is plenty of room for new buildings – car parking etc and a ready made sports field thrown in.

I ask the planners and local councillors to give this idea serious consideration.
