Alumno Developments is investigating plans to build 300 student flats at the Barn Road car park at the bottom of Grapes Hill in Norwich.

The student accommodation specialists have discussed plans with members of Norwich City Council's planning committee in advance of a full planning application being submitted.

If the development goes ahead it will be known as Mulberry Yard and will see the student accommodation being built on top of the city council's Barn Road car park.

The London-based company is also being the student housing for Norwich University of the Arts students built near Norwich bus station and Pablo Fanque House in All Saints Green.

Commenting on the project, David Campbell, managing director at Alumno, said: "This project will redevelop an important entry point to the city centre, re-provide and modernise the existing parking capacity, whilst at the same time providing state of the art modern accommodation for students studying in Norwich."

"Students form an increasingly important part of the fabric and diverse nature of the community in Norwich, and with this development we hope to continue to contribute to that rich vibrancy whilst supporting the local economy."
