Lord Ha' Mercy

Plans to replace industrial facilities on Mercy Terrace in Ladywell with a hefty new student accommodation block have been released. A planning application has been submitted for:

The new block
"Demolition of the existing building and the construction of a mixed use development comprising approx. 250sqm of office floorspace (Use Class B1) and 97 student rooms and ancillary accommodation together with disabled parking and landscaping."
The site, lurking beneath Ladywell Road
Swapping warehouse space for accommodation is the right move and the block looks OK to us, but others will have stronger views, no-doubt!
