The Seale-Hayne Futures Group has called on the Plymouth University to put £1M from the sale of the Seale-Hayne property back into education – namely the Seale-Hayne Educational Trust.
Ian Goodwin of the futures group, said Plymouth University had profited from the college, which was set up as a charity,
He said: “It would not hurt them to boost the Seale-Hayne charity from the money they had made from selling its assets.”
Plymouth University administers the Seale-Hayne Educational Trust, which was set up three years after it took over the Seale-Hayne site.
Ian said: “We have been badgering the Charity Commission, but they have said the university has the right. We feel the Charity Commission has made and mistake but won’t admit it.”
According to the Charity Commission, they don’t have any jurisdiction over Plymouth University.
