Planning permission granted for Purpose Built Student Housing in Westminster

24th January 2019

Nexus Planning has successfully obtained full planning permission for the redevelopment of a high-profile former public house located along Harrow Road in Westminster to deliver much needed Purpose Built Student Housing (PBSH).

The scheme incorporates a significant increase in floorspace to provide 34 new bedspaces and communal space, whilst retaining the primary facades and providing a new commercial use at ground floor level.

The planning strategy required a detailed and sensitive approach in order to overcome the Local Authority’s initial objections and to gain the support of a number of local resident amenity groups, Neighbourhood Planning Forums and Local Councillors, with Westminster’s Planning Applications Sub-Committee voting unanimously to approve the plans to provide student housing in an area of high demand.
