    Up to GBP 9.6 million. (under an existing Education Framework Facility with Barclays Bank plc, London)

    Total cost (Approximate amount)

    Up to GBP 64.4 million.

    Environmental aspects

    Council Directive 97/11/EEC on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), as amended by 2003/35, does not specifically mention facilities for higher education, but these could in some circumstances be seen as urban development projects. (thus falling under Annex II of the Directive) The project by virtue of its nature, size and location appears unlikely to have a significant effect on environment. The basis for requesting (or not) an EIA by the competent authorities, the local planning and approval process and actual/possible significant impacts on protected flora and fauna (Habitats’ and Birds’ Directives) will be verified during project appraisal.


    English Further Education colleges, including Walsall College, are required by the Learning and Skills Council to follow EU procurement guidelines.
