The Imporium on Heavitree Road looks set to be replaced with three floors of student accommodation.

The Exeter based indie hi-fi shop sold off its contents last year and was subsequently closed.

Now, plans have been submitted to change the use of The Emporium and convert its upstairs flat.

The storefront will be torn down to keep the frontage in line with the row of homes next to it.

The Design and Access Statement, submitted as part of the application, reveals that a total of 6 bedrooms will be provided.

A decision on the development is expected to be delivered by the middle of May.
