DPP has secured permission for a purpose built student accomodation (PBSA) scheme on the former Mecca Bingo site in York
DPP’s Leeds office has secured permission for a PBSA scheme on the site of the former Mecca Bingo site on Fishergate in York, after approval at Planning Committee. Proposed by Olympian Homes and Grantside Ltd, the scheme will see the redevelopment of the existing site into a 275 bed development, comprising a mix of studios and clusters, in two main blocks with extensive outdoor and indoor amenity space. The scheme provides 5 accessible car parking spaces with EV points, as well as 168 bike parking spaces.
This consent maitains DPP’s 100% success rate in student accomodation sector despite growing public and political opposition to such schemes.
Director in the Leeds office, Michelle Davies said:
We were extremely pleased to secure this consent as there remains a critical need for further student bed spaces to meet the demand in York. This is a high-quality scheme in a sustainable location which represents real regeneration of a vacant gateway site into the City.
