This is how a new 200-bedroom block of student flats is to look on Moor Lane.

Planning approval has been given for the multi-million pound scheme.

Innovation House is to have 218 bedrooms set over two four-storey buildings.

Ladson Group said the investment in the city’s Preston campus – with the University of Central Lancashire’s £200m masterplan – had been a big factor in choosing to invest in the new student flats.
