An old cinema is being knocked down to build student flats
The flats are on 15 Dalton Square
A proposal to build a four-storey building with 28 student apartments is set to be under approval at Lancaster's planning committee next week.
The proposed plans are set to include 24 one-bedroom studios, three two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment.
The site is host to a former cinema, which closed in 1974, but has been used as a children's soft play area, bar and discotheque.
The individual behind the project is local developer Inayat Munshi, who is said to have interest in other student housing in the city.
Harrison Pitt Architects, are behind the designing of the project. The design plans will include a renovation of the cinema's facade and foyer, with the auditorium itself being demolished to be replaced with the student apartments.
The planning application for the project was submitted previously in 2018 but was withdrawn after discussions with planning officers, which concluded the building was too tall for the area.
The scheme is being recommended for approval next week at the Lancaster planning committee.
