THE University of Ulster's council agreed last week to press ahead with a plan to build a pounds 98m campus near Belfast's peaceline, the no man's land that separates the city's Protestant and Catholic communities. The Springvale campus, by far the most controversial proposal in the Government's effort to rejuvenate West Belfast, is likely to attract funding from the European Union and the International Fund for Ireland. The management consultants Touche Ross say the campus should be open in 1998. The architects are RMJM, whose vast campus for Westminster University is being built at Harrow, Middlesex.
