Plan for 63 student rooms at site near New Cross venue club

Plans have been submitted to demolish low-rise commercial units including a former William Hill and build 63 student rooms a couple of door down from Venue in New Cross.

Frontage of new build

The current low rise buildings break up building lines. This offers a decent transition between existing buildings.


Overall it seems a decent use of land. Most students won’t mind living near a club, and well if they do, don’t move there. Students living for a year as freshers is a lot more suitable than people in full time employment, and the more student accommodation is built the fewer family homes become HMOs for students.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

    I like the idea of purpose built HMO student accomodation. This is a better option than coverting family homes to HMO’s. I think the student accomodation will fit in well and the students will love living near a night club.

    I also think the windowless hotel planned for Deptford would make good student accomodation if windows fitted to the rooms and there was not enough up take of the hotel rooms.
