100,000 students flood to the UK – does the Alton Estate need to keep an eye on this?

There’s not much to add to this Evening Standard article of 5th August, other than to mention, let’s not forget that the Alton Estate is in between Roehampton & Kingston University.

The Evening Standard article – Developer Unite poised to benefit as 100,000 students flood to the UK

Let’s not forget section 50 of Council Paper No. 14-447 which states;

“It is expected that demand for purpose built managed student accommodation will continue in the future. There is demand from the University of Roehampton and in the local area from Kingston University. Consultation with specialist student housing agents has indicated there would be strong interest from market developers in providing student housing on a commercial basis”.
