UTC marks new era for education in Daventry

THE new University Technical College (UTC) is likely to move a step closer to being completed following a meeting next week.

A planning application for the UTC, to be built on Ashby Road in Daventry has been submitted and will be determined at a meeting of Daventry District Council’s (DDC) planning committee on Wednesday.

Council officers have recommended the plans for approval and one of the councillors believe that it will be of major benefit to the town.

Cllr Chris Over, DDCs economic, employment and regeneration portfolio holder, said: “This is a new era for education in the town and I think it is great news for the people of the town.”
