Triangle Site Student Hall

UPDATE: 2023

The plans described below were refused and that refusal was upheld at appeal. Since then a new developer has come forward with a proposal for a low-rise mixed development with fewer student rooms.


Plans have now been submitted for a student hall of residence on the Triangle Site (old Sainsbury's).

You can view the plans and make formal comments for consideration by the Planning Committee here using planning reference 2020/01795/PA.
