Student accommodation granted planning

Date posted: January 6, 2016

Planning permission has been received for a new Student Accommodation scheme close to Andover Road in Winchester. Our client, Osborne is seeking to capitalise on the success of the ArchitecturePLB designed development at University of Winchester’s Burma Road with this new 257 room project.A key aspect of the project is its position within the Station Approach masterplan area. The scheme is the first development to come forward and therefore design quality and contribution to the public realm were key considerations for the planning authority. At committee, the design was commended for setting a high quality precedent for the area.
