The Raven Group have submitted revised plans for a three-storey student accommodation on Ellis Grove, following refusal by the planning committee last year.

The previous plans were refused as they were deemed to "represent an over-intensive form of development" in the September meeting. Concerns were also raised regarding lack of on-site parking.

The site is currently in use as a single-storey warehouse, which will be demolished if plans are approved.

Plans consist of a three bedroom, four bedroom and five bedroom apartment on each of the three floors, totalling 36 student beds. The Raven Group claim "The development has been designed to maximise the potential of the site".

Additional parking has been included in the revised plans, increasing from 2 parking bays to 14. This is in line with other PBSA that have previously been approved by the committee.

The Broxtowe Borough Council Planning Committee have recommended approval of the updated plans.

The proposal states that the current warehouse site is being "inefficiently used" and that, given the location, the proposed units would help to "meet a growing need of high-quality accommodation adding to the housing range."
