The college lodged a planning application on Monday, January 24 with Falkirk Council to construct a water recycling compound – along with a smoking shelter – at its Grangemouth Road facility.

In its sustainability statement FVC confirms it is committed to minimising environmental impact from its activities and recognise its corporate responsibility, as provider of further education, to act in a responsible manner while also promoting sustainability issues within the course provision, for future generations to adopt and continue development of their heritage and culture.

Sustainability includes the social aspect of interaction with employees, students, stakeholders and the community to ensure a positive image and service with minimal negative impact for future societies, covering the wider aspects of sustainable growth.
