BROCKENHURST residents have been invited to have their say on plans for a new £4.9m special needs hub at the college.

A public information event is being held tomorrow night (Tuesday) at Brockenhurst College where locals can see proposals for the 1,200sqft structure, planned behind the main campus.

The college announced the event only this afternoon.

Guests will be given a presentation and can ask questions on the scheme, which is currently at the pre-planning stage with the national park authority.

The building will incorporate a special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) "independence hub" and house its existing foundation studies department.

It is hope to be open by the end of March 2023.

“The new development would help us build on our strong reputation as a provider of SEND and foundation studies education, while also expanding our teaching space to support the ongoing demographic increase in 16-19 learners.”

The public information event will be held 5pm-6.30pm in the college's main hall
