An extension has been agreed for the Weymouth College site. The two-storey extension at the Purbeck Building has been approved by Dorset Council.
It will provide additional classrooms to the first floor with two additional practical classrooms on the ground floor for the construction industry department.
“Although higher than the existing roofline it is considered visually acceptable. The extension would match in style and materials the existing buildings,” said a report.
Council planners heard there had been no objections to the addition and the proposed development will be on the north side next to a sports field.
