Coventry City Centre has another student accommodation block on the cards, as planners at Coventry City Council have given the go-ahead for a five-storey development just outside the ring road.

After slightly altering the plans to trim a few bedrooms off the top floor, developer Ben Gaunt now has permission to knock down an ex-office building called Granton House to replace it with a new 67 bed block. When built it would stand alongside the existent Liberty Park student accommodation building.

The site has prior form too, gaining acceptance for a larger development back in 2012 that never went ahead.
