Developer wins appeal for student accommodation scheme

A developer has won an appeal to build a 196-bed student accommodation block in Coventry.

Coventry City Council rejected the plans last September for the six-storey building, which would replace a disused business unit.

The scheme will be built on an industrial estate on Burnsall Road in Earlsdon.

The plans by DR2H feature self-catering studio flats, with plans for a private gym, cinema, and rooftop terrace close to the University of Warwick and Cannon Park shopping centre.
