FOI Request Student Accommodation

Request 101001724677

I request:
a) the total number of purpose-built student accommodation developments, with total number of rooms, built in each year over the past 10 years, by i) university/colleges and ii) private developers
b) whether the council require student developments to include a quota of affordable residential housing, in line with general guidance for residential developments

Response 30-01-2018

(a) The only application we have dealt with is 16/01264/APP

(b) Student accommodation is in a different use class to dwellings and therefore our policy on affordable housing only applies to applications that fall within  Use Class 9 "Houses".The Council’s affordable housing policy does not apply to new student accommodation. Therefore there is no requirement to provide an element of affordable housing in residential developments for students.
