Usk Campus Development Study
Aim of this project
This project commissioned external independent consultants to undertake a two stage study into potential developments at the Usk campus of Coleg Gwent.
The Usk site is an underutilised asset and it is clear it has potential to add more value to learning, local tourism and recreation offer, community benefit, and provide a sustainable income stream to support Coleg Gwent’s key activity.
What the project achieved
A high quality, well researched and robust set of phased, complementary proposals for developments on the Usk Campus. It will help support the future of the Usk Campus as a thriving hub for the provision of further education, training and community assets in Monmouthshire.
The application for this project was approved by the LAG on 3rd November 2016.
