Sixty-bed student scheme planned for Nottingham

The former play centre

Plans for a new 60-bed student accommodation in Nottingham have been submitted to the City Council.

The scheme will involve the demolition of the existing property, disused play centre, at 34 Tennyson Street, which has been sold by Nottingham City Council to Fletcher Construction Midlands.

The proposed development consists of two blocks of four linked units and one block of two links units. Each unit will three storeys high and have an open plan lounge and kitchen at ground floor level and three en-suite bedrooms on the first and second floors.

A planning statement with the application reads: “The proposed development is a significant improvement on the existing property at number 34 Tennyson Street. It is a high quality design which will have a beneficial impact on the surrounding area.”
