    Default New Student Accommodation

    A new development seems to be announced at least once a month; how much student accommodation does Coventry need?

    The proposal is totally unsuited to that area.

    I spent many happy lunchtimes in that pub when I worked for Austin Rover. Such a shame it's gone the way of so many others.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    There won't be any room left for locals soon: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...ation-15000820

    There is a definite anti-student feeling running through Coventry at the moment, but it's actually the government to blame. Many other cities mirror Coventry's views.

    No doubt the developer of this property in Kenilworth will resubmit the plans with an extra parking space included: https://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/...cted-1-8632342

    With online education gathering pace, this is ludicrous. There are already student flats in Coventry lying empty.

    There must be a point where student accommodation reaches saturation point.
