Here is an inside view of the Co-op building on London Road. A few weeks ago work has started to convert the site into student flats. The façade on London Road of the old Co-op store will be retained. The scheme will be for 351 student flats. The building could be ready for 2014/15 academic year. One or two shops should be retained on the ground floor, one could be a supermarket. A cycle store for 120 cycles will be housed in the basement.
