3d visuals help council grant planning after opposition

Plans for the former Bus Depot on Magdalen Street in Colchester have been approved after years of uncertainty. The site which was previously owned by Colchester Council, looked as though it may be refused on grounds that it was over developed. Although planning officers had recommended the plans, it was faced by widespread objections by councillors, but after careful consideration taking into account all points raised it was given approval in September.

The scheme which was originally submitted by Fleming Maguire Architects will be run by Victoria Halls Management. Victoria Halls which currently runs accommodation in 28 locations across the UK through is brand ‘Host’, also has plans to further expand this by 1500 beds. The accommodation will house approximately 230 students in 16 studios and 60 cluster flats, and will also include bin stores, cycle spaces, a management office, gym and communal amenity areas.
