Report to Planning Committee, 18 December 2013 


Following a number of applications brought to Planning Committee, the current position in terms of outstanding or unimplemented student accommodation schemes in the city centre had been queried by Committee members.

The LAPP (Land and Planning Policies) document's preferred option stage had gone out for public consultation in September 2013. The LAPP contains draft planning policies which seek to promote and protect family housing as well as encouraging purpose built student accommodation (PBSA) in locations such as the city centre, university campuses and other allocated sites.

Also, Unipol has completed research on the student housing market in Nottingham, and a report: 'Assessment of Student Residence and Housing Market Conditions in Nottingham' has been published (see: Report Launched on Student Housing Market Conditions in Nottingham).
