FAR-REACHING plans to transform education in Stevenage are about to take a major step forward.

Launched by the Government, Building Schools for the Future (BSF) is a programme aimed at rebuilding, refurbishing or renewing every secondary school in England.

Herts County Council (HCC) has made Stevenage its top priority, securing a �200 million investment in the first of 12 area projects across Hertfordshire over the next 10 to 15 years.

HCC is holding a BSF Bidders' Day at Robertson House in Stevenage on February 9, inviting companies interested in becoming partners in the plans for Stevenage to come and find out more.

"We are expecting our outline business case for Stevenage schools to be approved by the Government in February," said Simon Newland, director of BSF.
