The scheme, put forward by Cassidy + Ashton, was recommended for approval by planning officers who said: “The proposed development would lead to the reuse of vacant premises in a sustainable location and would provide student accommodation close to the university campus.

“Subject to appropriate conditions, particularly to relating to noise and daylight to ensure adequate amenity levels, the proposal complies with the relevant provisions of the development plans and there are no material considerations which outweigh this finding.”

As well as student flats the development will see a bike store, laundry room and a 24-hour concierge system.

Work is due to start on the warehouse to have it ready for the first students to move in from July 2016.
