Zerum were appointed as planning consultants for this interesting scheme within Salford’s Knowledge Capital. The scheme proposes 2 blocks containing a total of 272 student accommodation studio apartments with private gym and cinema, as well as basement car parking.
The proposal was developed in order to bolster Salford’s up-and-coming status as one of the top University cities in the UK, with particular attention paid to the need to attract mature and international students, who are more likely to be attracted to studio living.
The application had to address a number of planning challenges including, justifying the need for student accommodation, the loss of employment land and possible S.106 Contributions.
The scheme was designed by architects, Falconer Chester Hall, an award winning architect who have considerable experience in designing high quality student accommodation.
