Student Accommodation Approved
Against the backdrop of the current world situation, some positive news as our proposed student accommodation scheme at Blackboy Road, Exeter was approved on Monday evening. Despite a heart in mouth moment when the meeting was briefly suspended for an urgent briefing to councillors, the scheme for 71 units was finally approved following a protracted planning process. This is the first student accommodation scheme in Exeter to be approved in 18 months and is testament to our commitment to work with the planning department. Members were pleased that their previous comments had been addressed and that the developer had listened and adapted the scheme. It is hoped that regeneration of this abandoned site may help kickstart some wider improvements to the area.
