A predominantly level and irregular shaped site totalling about 3.04 acres (1.23 hectares). The site is currently largely covered by shrubs and trees and has vehicular access directly from All Saints Road close to its junction with Dirkhill Road.

Bradford has a large student population as a result of being home to the University of Bradford and Bradford College. The University is a leading institution in the green movement, with its ecoversity programme assessing sustainable issues throughout the University. This has led to the creation of The Green, a sustainable student village which is part of a £70m modernisation plan.


Summary: The site is located at the junction of All Saints Road and Dirkhill Road to the south west of the city centre in a mixed residential and commercial area. It lies directly to the west of the University Student Living Bradford Halls of Residence.

1. Planning permission has been granted (subject to a Section 106 Agreement) for the development of four student accommodation blocks, each providing between 110 and 170 bedrooms creating 580 ensuite rooms plus sports facilities (planning reference 07/06379/FUL). This consent was subsequently varied to enable a new internal layout to be approved utilising the same approved footprint and external envelope (reference 09/03603/VOC).

2. Bradford Council has provided a letter stating that the pre-commencement conditions attached to the varied consent have subsequently been discharged and the planning permission lawfully implemented.

3. A previous planning consent for the development of 1,084 student bedrooms has now lapsed.

4. A pre-application enquiry has been submitted to Bradford Council proposing the redevelopment of the site for student accommodation, residential (including private residential for rent) and mixed use development. Discussions are ongoing but the initial response has been positive. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries.
