Progress Slows in Closing the Attainment Gap
7th Dec 2018
Plans to build a 266-bed block of student flats in Coventry have been given the green light.
The former Dairy Crest factory in Harper Road will be demolished to make way for the 266-bed development.
The project is being delivered by Crosslane Group, who aim to have the building ready in time for the 2019-20 academic year.
The bedrooms will be split across cluster flats of up to seven bedrooms, with students sharing kitchen facilities and a lounge. However, the scheme will also come equipped with a common room, study hub, gym, and bike storage.
The new student accommodation will replace the old Dairy Crest depot, which has laid empty for around five years.
The original application was for the scheme was withdrawn by the developers due to concerns the site would negatively impact a two-mile walk connecting Charterhouse to the city centre. However, the revised scheme has now been granted approval.
Commenting on the project, Mike Moran, development manager at Crosslane Student Developments, said: "Crosslane is pleased to have secured planning consent successfully for its new purpose-built student accommodation development on Harper Road, Coventry, following extensive engagement with the local planning authority on the design and a public consultation process with local residents."
"Following the recent successful planning application for its scheme at Friars Road in Coventry, Crosslane is looking forward to investing further in this fantastic student city and supporting the university's growth ambitions, as well as helping to ease the wider housing shortage, by building and managing high-quality, centrally located student accommodation."
