Council Plans for New Student Flats

Winchester residents have raised complaints regarding a new block of 400 student flats being built on Milnthorpe Lane in Winchester.

Plans for the build have already been approved by Winchester City Council however the issue has been brought forward once again after neighbours expressed their concerns that not all agreed arrangements were being met.

Part of the plan approved by the council stated that louvers, a special kind of shutter would be fixed to the windows of the new build in order to reduce noise and light pollution. As these are yet to be fitted, the council held a meeting last Thursday to discuss the measures needed to put them in place before students move into the block.
