A cinema is to be demolished and turned into a four-storey building with 28 apartments for students, under plans recommended for approval next week.
The proposed scheme at 13 Dalton Square in Lancaster will include 24 one-bedroom studios, three two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment.
The developer and applicant, a private individual named as Inayat Munshi based in Lancaster, according to Companies House, is understood to have other student housing interests in the city. He has previously advertised student accommodation at 6 Villas Court.
The proposed Dalton Square scheme was subject to two visits last year due to issues raised over noise concerns, which have since been appeased.
A planning application was previously submitted for the site in 2018 and subsequently withdrawn following conversations with planning officers in which the scheme was deemed too tall for the area.
Harrison Pitt Architects designed the project.
The scheme is recommended for approval at Lancaster’s planning committee next week.
