A college campus building is likely to be demolished with the site developed into flats.

Three Rivers District Council has granted outline planning permission to turn West Herts College campus in Kings Langley into a development of up to 65 flats.

The Kings Langley students and staff will be moving to an expanding, state-of-the-art campus in Hemel Hempstead next summer.

However, the plans for the existing campus site in Home Park Mill Link Road are not yet set in stone.

West Herts College has secured this outline planning permission and is now in a position to sell the site to a developer, with permission already in place.

But whoever buys the land will need to submit firmer proposals for the site.

But the council's outline approval, given in August, essentially gives the green light to residential development on the land in question.

A spokesperson for West Herts College said: "Demand for modern skills in engineering and technology has never been greater. To meet this growing interest, the college is moving from its site in Kings Langley to a larger, state-of-the-art base at the college’s expanding Hemel Hempstead campus.

"This transfer is taking place in summer 2020, with Kings Langley campus remaining fully open for all students throughout the coming 2019-20 academic year.

"Modern campuses are essential for the successful delivery of training for skills that are in high demand. At Hemel Hempstead campus there is space for a wider range of courses and apprenticeships, plus many new partnerships with employers."
