Dyson School of Design Runs Into More Trouble, Thinks of Moving to US

0814dyson.jpg

Back in March, you might recall that we were reporting on James Dyson finally, after months and months of government intervention, getting the okay to open his Dyson School of Design Innovation in the UK. Well, it looks like we spoke too fast, as it’s being reported now by the local Bath Chronicle that the scheduled building has been put back on hold pending additional investigation as to whether or not the school will be safe where it will be constructed (next to a river) and if the town still even wants him there to begin with, pushing the building back to at least 2012. Dyson has said that he wants to keep the school in the UK, but he’s been approached by investors to move the planning over to the US and build it over here. Whether or not that’s for real or is simply a maneuver to scare the local government to hurry up and give him a more solid okay is anyone’s guess, but clearly no one in the Dyson camp is very happy at the moment. We’ll keep an eye out and let you know what goes down when we pick up any more news.
