WHAT a travesty. Our regional college could be moved. Planning applications are in progress for building a new regional college out of town at Hinchingbrooke.

How can this go ahead and they afford this when it has been revealed to staff last week that up to 20 posts will be made redundant?

I have been told that staff have been asked to sign up to the new build every time they log on to their computers. Failure to sign the first time simply results in their being sent the form again. In a redundancy situation is this not tantamount to bullying?

If there is a need to reduce staff size, will the new college have enough to offer? What areas are being reduced? What lessons are being closed?

If the move does go ahead, the college will be replaced with housing. This cannot be an improvement for the already overcrowded area in Huntingdon. If the college needs to be rebuilt, why can't it be built on the area next to it, which has been allocated for housing?

I would strongly recommend that all local residents petition against this closure and move and staff cuts.
