3:17pm Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
A TOWN centre common room in Nelson for college students could be housed in Scotland Road.
Attempts to open up a common room for students at Nelson and Colne College have been ongoing as part of the Mary Portas pilot in the town.
Judith Watmough, senior regeneration officer, said: “Discussions are ongoing regarding the feasibility of the college and other agencies running an information, advice and guidance centre from the former Young People’s Service building.
“The centre would offer support focused on people who are not in employment, education or training.
“It is also hoped this building could accommodate the young persons café/ common room which students and local young people identified they would like to see in the town centre. The venue would play their music, provide a place to work and socialise.”
