Runshaw College to sell Euxton Lane campus to Lancashire Constabulary.

Runshaw College is to sell its Euxton Lane campus to Lancashire Constabulary. Runshaw has been delivering courses for adults and apprentices from the Euxton Lane campus for around 20 years, but in February announced plans to move to a single campus at Langdale Road, Leyland. The college now uses several local community venues for Adult Education courses, including the new Strawberry Fields Digital Hub, and continues to expand its very successful Apprenticeship provision in hundreds of workplaces and online.

Runshaw College Principal & CEO, Clare Russell, said:

I am delighted to announce the next stage of our Estates Masterplan project, as we create highly desirable facilities for students, achieve a reduction in the college’s carbon footprint and address the inefficiencies of operating over two campuses. Selling the Euxton Lane campus means that we can invest the proceeds in refurbishment and development projects at the Langdale Road campus, to further improve our facilities and resource them with industry-standard equipment and technology. Our new Buttermere building will open in a few weeks and we then have further plans to improve our Health and Science facilities. These exciting developments will ensure Runshaw College is well-positioned to meet the needs of the residents of Chorley, South Ribble and the wider Lancashire area well into the future. We are pleased that the Euxton Lane building will continue to be used to serve our community, by Lancashire Constabulary.
