The Learning and Skills Council will have been in regular contact with all colleges affected by the current position. Colleges can expect to meet shortly with the external team of property advisers that the LSC has appointed who will ensure information held by the LSC is a sound basis for making future decisions.

Budget 2009 announced an additional £300 million in the current spending review period, which allows a limited number of further projects to start. Selection of projects will need to be based on objective criteria the LSC are currently developing in consultation with the sector.
