Residents in the Newtown area of Chester have been informed by Jansons Property regarding their intentions to build student housing alongside Hoole bridge.

Developers are looking to transform the site, currently a railway station car park, into student accommodation and have invited residents to a drop-session being held on September 22.

Company spokesman Benjamin Roberts said: "Listening to communities is important to us and we want to have a dialogue with residents before we finalise our plans and submit a planning application to the council."

Plans call for a single, attractive, modern building with apartments designed to appeal in particular to mature students, international students and students with families.

Mr Roberts has invited everyone to the drop-in session where the development team will be on hand to explain the proposals and answer any questions residents may have.

Other schemes nearby include Tramways, located by the railway station, which comes equipped with 387 en-suite rooms and 11 self-contained studios. Northgate Point is also near to completion and is located in Trafford Street, with 121 self-contained apartments.
