Students at Boston College could soon benefit from revamped facilities – after an application to extend its Skirbeck Road site was given the go ahead.

College bosses had drawn up plans for a new reception area, library and student services building at the Rochford Campus site.

Additional car parking spaces are also included in the plans which are part of an overall expansion plan which will see all students moved over from the De Montfort Campus.

Plans passed by Boston Borough Council show a new reception and waiting area, management offices and student services with ancillary plant room, cleaners store and kitchenettes on the ground-floor and a foyer and reception, large open-plan library and three quiet study areas to the first-floor and circulation areas on both storeys.

There is also a glazed link proposed to connect the new building to the existing main building.
