Plans for £26m tech institute at Bletchley Park

Plans have been submitted to develop part of Bletchley Park into a technology school for 1,000 students. Milton Keynes College is seeking council approval for the £26m development of listed buildings at the codebreaking site in Buckinghamshire. It hopes to transform the Block D buildings into spaces for seminars, events, student support and a cafe. The application claims the Institute of Technology would “provide much needed education facilities” to the area. The three hectare site will be one of 12 Institutes of Technology in the country, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said. The government hopes the institutes will provide young people a vocational alternative to universities.
