Future Generation has secured planning permission for a new student development in Cambridge.

Dubbed Barnwell Gate, the £25million development will consist of 154 beds with the majority of rooms being arranged as cluster flats.

The new scheme is located just a 10-minute cycle ride away from Cambridge University, with the current occupant of the site being relocated.

Commenting on the announcement, Andrew Southern, chairman of Southern Grove and Future Generation, said: "This attractive scheme is going to continue to show off our strengths when it comes to designing spacious living quarters that don't cut corners when it comes to design and quality of life for students."

"While demand for student accommodation in some parts of the country is beginning to tail off, there is huge ongoing demand for purpose-built student accommodation in Cambridge."
