Kingston Council set to approve Old London Road student flats
Plans for 60 student flats in Old London Road have been given the thumbs-up by Kingston Council officers.
Officers have recommended councillors approve the scheme at a meeting next week.
The five-storey building would stand at the end of Kingston’s oldest shopping street, opposite the Wilkinson store and right at the end of the queue for Pryzm nightclub – formerly Oceana.
The planning application includes the demolition of the Little Italy restaurant building, though the new development would make room for a restaurant.
Of 66 residents and business owners consulted on the scheme, four objected.
If approved, the development would have to be started within three years.
Officers said in a report the proposed restaurant should not be allowed to operate before 6am or after midnight.
Councillors will vote on the plans at a meeting of the development control committee on Thursday, December 12, at 7.30pm in the Guildhall.
