Plater College, Oxford, is a Roman Catholic College operating in the FE sector. The college trustees have taken the decision to close the college in July 2005. It is not known, at this stage, whether the Department or the LSC will have any claim on the college's assets. This will be one of the issues to resolve as the college nears closure and will be dependent upon the terms of its memorandum and articles of association and its contractual arrangements with the LSC, which funds some of its activities.
