Claire Sugden “delighted” by announcement of new building for NRC in Coleraine

1 Mins read

Claire Sugden MLA has expressed her delight at today’s announcement confirming the approval of a new building for the Northern Regional College in Coleraine

MLA Sugden said: “I am delighted the Minister has announced to my Committee this morning (Wednesday) that he has finally approved the new build of Northern Regional College at Coleraine.

Of all the Further Education colleges across Northern Ireland, NRC is the last to be considered for capital investment. I have been pressing the Minister for investment since becoming a MLA and I am so pleased that right before the Assembly dissolves for the May election, I have a result.

The new build is desperately needed. NRC offers fantastic courses and opportunities to contribute to our talented workforce. This is discouraged by the current facilities which are long outdated and not fit for purpose. A new state of the art build in the town centre will do great things to reinvigorate our young people and local business in Coleraine and the North West.

While is has always been my priority that a new build happens in Coleraine, I am disappointed how this will affect Ballymoney. The campus in Ballymoney has great links with local business and the community, voluntary sector and I fear this could pull the rug from beneath them. I would encourage the Department to maintain a facility here and will gladly work with local reps to ensure this.”
