Plans to construct a 331-bed student accommodation block in Newcastle's city centre look set to be given the green light.

Proposals put forward by Adderstone Group involve the development of the former PTS Ltd offices into an eight-storey student accommodation scheme.

The building will consist of 91 individual studio apartments and 38 cluster apartments. In total the building will be able to accommodate 331 students.

The building has been designed in a U-shape around a landscaped central courtyard area, which will also have storage space for up to 80 bicycles.

The project, which has been recommended for approval, is one of three in Newcastle being worked on by Adderstone.
