Working with Marcini Curran Architects, we have supported the latest application at Lonsdale Place on Uttoxeter New Road in Derby.  The site was previously occupied by a petrol filling station and a classic car restoration business.  In 2014 we assisted Marchini Curran gain consent for a food retail store and 12 residential dwellings.  This latest application is for 82 bedrooms of student accommodation in four blocks. The proposed development will provide 10 car parking spaces, and hence the majority of the bedrooms will be marketed as car-free.  Our challenge was to demonstrate the sustainable location and its accessibility on foot, bicycle and by bus to prove the number of parking spaces would be adequate.
