PLANS for an elite college funded by the government and the nuclear industry have been welcomed by council bosses.

The Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) wants to support high level technical skills in the nuclear industry by creating a specialised college.

The location for the new college is currently unknown, but Councillor David Hall, deputy leader of Somerset County Council, said: “Somerset County Council welcomes this news and stands ready to link any new development with the significant Further Education investment already made in Somerset and the South West for this growing sector.”
