Portland College

DLP have secured full planning approval and subsequent discharge of pre-commencement Conditions for the development of a Woodland Activity Centre at Portland College, Mansfield.

Portland College is a leading specialist college which works with disabled people to develop their employability, independence and communication skills – and with employers, to create an inclusive workforce and to support business growth.

Maber Architects, the landscape architects for the project, designed the Woodland Activity Centre to make optimal use of the varied levels across the site. The Centre will consist of a 100-metre zipline with a climbing wall, a gravity bike trail, an adventure trail and areas for sensory and group activities.

All the proposed facilities have been designed to be accessible to people with disabilities, including wheelchair users, and will also be available free of charge to local primary schools and disadvantaged groups.
