Controversial student accommodation scheme gets go-ahead

How the revised designs look

Revised plans to build a 40-bed student accommodation scheme on the site of a Nottingham city centre pub have been given planning permission

Nottingham City Council’s planning committee has given the nod for the scheme, subject to minor amendments to details of the design and a Section 106 agreement.

The scheme had received criticism from locals who had mocked the designs by architecture firm Cordage.

Revised plans show significantly-changed designs for a five-storey building of studio flats aimed at the student market.

The planning application was been brought forward by Punch Pubs. The decision will mean that the Nottingham Legend venue, next to the National Ice Arena, will be demolished

There will also be space to store 40 cycles.
