Planning permission has been extended for the development of a 36-bed block of student accommodation in Bangor.

Situated at the former Victoria Building Land, at Plas Llwyd Terrace, Watkin Jones received approval for the scheme in 2013. Although buildings on the site were demolished several years ago, the site still lays vacant. However, Watkin Jones have now received an extension to the originally approved plans, with permission now due to expire in 2023.

The site is located within 100m of Bangor High Street and the City Centre and sits in an elevated position at the top end of Plas Llwyd Terrance, which contains a Gwynedd Council owned and managed public car park.

Bangor City Council objected to the development on the grounds the city is already suffering with an over population of student accommodation and too many properties of this type were currently unoccupied.
