Dear University of Manchester,

In September 2015 a planning application was submitted for the redevelopment of Owens Park Fallowfield Campus. This included the demolition of more than 1,000 beds and the construction of c. 1,700 new bedrooms.

Planning ref: 110184/FO/2015/S1

What is the status of this development?

How many of the proposed beds have already been demolished and what is the construction status of the new beds being proposed, and when are these expected to be delivered?

Yours faithfully,

Steve Blunn

Dear Sharon (MTRS FOIA),

Thank you for the update.

Can you therefore confirm the total number of beds at the Owens Park residence for the 2020-21 academic year?

You mentioned that in total 1,000 beds were delivered in 2019. Are any more beds due to be built at the site?

Yours sincerely,

Steve Blunn
