Burrell Road student housing

Status: Lapsed
Type: Student housing
Year: 2005

A proposal was submitted in 2005 for the construction of a 6-storey block of student accommodation, comprising of 146 student rooms and 8 apartments in Burrell Road. The site, adjacent to Bridge Street, was formerly workshops and has since been used as a temporary car park. The design of the proposal was met with criticism, especially from local residents whom were concerned with the imposing scale along Burrell Road, despite this the proposal was accepted. Yet, possibly due to market forces as well as the fact that the University was not yet constructed, this proposal lapsed. The now abandoned site, used as a temporary car park, has not seen any new proposals since, and remains undeveloped.
