The new student accommodation building project on Holdenhurst Road has been suspended by Bournemouth Council due to Bournemouth residents’ objection letters.
Lisa Hugh, 51, says: “There are already so many student Residence Halls in town centre, why should we add one more and increase the noise and traffic problems? Who will stop students bringing their cars in here? I think there should be more restrictions for students in Bournemouth, especially in the town centre“.
“Bournemouth benefits from the students being here and there is a huge economic impact on the town... I know that the Council is very keen to raise the profile of the town and anything that would help to do that would be a good thing for them, I think“.
