As part of the type B merger process, Palmer’s Sixth Form College held a formal public consultation into proposals to merge the two colleges.
The consultation period ran from 23 March to 30 April 2017. The document was seen by both Boards as an opportunity to explain the rationale behind the merger and the benefits of a merged college for both areas.
The consultation document included a Statutory Notice of the intention to dissolve Palmer’s Sixth Form College. The Statutory Notice was also published in one local newspaper, the Thurrock Gazette, and one national newspaper, The Times.
