Plans put forward in October 2019 by the Watkin Jones Group to replace Exeter's ambulance station with a five storey student accommodation block have been revised in a bid to offer 'co-living' accommodation.

Although finer details are not yet available, the scheme is believed to be made up of 37 studio flats and 117 cluster rooms.

The rooms would be serviced and all shared apartments would have communal lounges, kitchens and bathrooms.

Original plans included external courtyards which, for protection of neighbours, would be closed at 10pm. In addition to this, the plans included 24 hour management and security staff.

Phil Bialyk, Exeter City Council leader, has said "the authority had been talking to developers about proposals for co-living to create balanced and sustainable communities in the city centre."
