Glyndwr University has launched a public consultation in regards to a huge £60million regeneration as part of its ‘Campus 2025’ project.
Seven planning applications are to be sent in the University’s strategy to improve all areas of its multiple campuses, with its main site situated in Wrexham.
As part of the project, Glyndwr will also be looking at selling two pieces of land in Wrexham, which could result in re-investment.
The public and local businesses have been invited to have their say on the development and give their views on the planning application, which is set to be submitted next month.
Plans include a new engineering building, which could also include the ability to support both students and local businesses, well-equipped workshop and high quality accommodation for more people to come to live and study in Wrexham.
Away from the main campus, Glyndwr’s presence on Regent Street could further enhance the importance of their arts school in a national standing whilst maintaining the heritage of the site.
Professor Maria Hinfelaar, Vice-Chancellor of Wrexham Glyndwr University said: “The success of these planning applications is critical to the future of the university.
“We have worked closely with Wrexham County Borough Council as well as architects, surveyors, highways and environmental teams to develop these proposals.
“Our ambition is to be the learning gateway into Wrexham and to contribute more to our local community.
“To achieve this, we need to do more with the footprint that we have and future-proof our campuses.
“Students are at the centre of our strategy and we will enhance the student experience by providing an infrastructure that supports learning, with stimulating state-of-the-art facilities and the latest in building designs and technology”.
These plans come off to back of exciting new projects already undertaken by the University, where in recent months new catering facilities have been installed along with a new study space and a relationship with the Football Association of Wales to transform their Colliers Park site.
