Plans for a major new student accommodation scheme in Bristol have been given the green light. Property firm Watkin Jones was granted approval for its 484-bed purpose-built development on Malago Road in Bedminster following two years of negotiations with the city council.

The revival of the brownfield site - formerly an engineering works and foundry - is one of the final projects in the Bedminster Green regeneration area.

The scheme will deliver managed homes for students ranging from six to 10 storeys across three buildings. The proposals include new public space and improvements to highway infrastructure, Watkin Jones said.

The scheme is the third for Watkin Jones in Bristol and is aiming to be rated BREEAM 'excellent', WiredScore 'gold' and have an EPC rating B, the developer added.
