Warning signs put up around former college to be demolished

12th April 2011 | Warning Signs

Warning signs to alert people about asbestos removal have been put up around a derelict building in Kettering as work begins to demolish it.

The former Tresham College in St Mary's Road will be replaced with private and retirement homes by developer William Davis Limited, after plans were given the green light last month, the Northants Evening Telegraph reports.

Mark Silverman, principal and chief executive of Tresham College, told the news provider that he was pleased the redevelopment had been approved, as it freed up money for the college to provide students with extra courses such as motorsport and music.

"Approval of this scheme supports the other regeneration projects currently under way in the town centre and will facilitate future expansion of further and higher education at our Windmill Avenue campus" Mr Silverman said.

Warning signs are essential where there is a risk of asbestos, as recent figures from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) showed that asbestos-related diseases cause around 4,000 deaths a year.  ADNFCR-2754-ID-800496840-ADNFCR
