The University of Exeter have announced plants to demolish Clydesdale, Nash Grove and Birks Grange refectory accommodation and replace them with new self-catered student flats to house 1,500 students.

In addition to student accommodation, ancillary services such as a shop and café will be built. The plans are driven to promote a campus environment by providing additional services close to student accommodation. The University argue that this will provide social benefits for students leaving home for the first time.

There will be no parking spaces available for students, apart from disabled residents, to discourage students from bringing cars to university. The University cited the convenient location and substantial public transport links as the reason for this decision. By preventing car travel, the University are encouraging carbon reduction and keeping in line with their Environmental and Sustainability Policy.

The plan is awaiting review by Exeter City Council who will determine the success of the application.
