In 2018 the Council granted planning permission for an 8 floor block of student accommodation. A planning app enquiry immediately followed the permission that asked the Council’s advice upon a proposal to extend the building to 20 floors. The Society did not support the new proposal and neither did the Council.
The developer, the F3Group, has made a second post-permission proposal to extend the permitted building to 14 floors. The Society does not support this proposal. This is a physically constrained site where a back of the pavement tall building would create an uncomfortable scale of enclosure not conducive to the placemaking aim of local planning policy and would harm the Redcliffe Conservation Area.
