Development of Archway Campus

There are new plans to redevelop Archway Campus by Seven Capital, who acquired the site in July 2021 after Peabody backed out. Many local people and organisations are not best pleased by the plans, especially the 27-storey student accommodation tower at the apex of the site. There's another ‘exhibition’ and public consultation coming up on Tuesday 6th June 2023 in the Methodist Hall from 3.30 to 7.30. A smattering of information can be found on their website here.
