Come see what’s in store for laundry site.

Another city proposal for more student accommodation is being opened to public scrutiny.

This time members of the local community are invited to a public exhibition to view proposals for the redevelopment of the Regency Laundry site at St Peter’s Terrace, Bath.

Watkin Jones acquired the current site on Lower Bristol Road in 2019 with the intention of developing the land into Purpose Built Student Accommodation units.

Once complete, says the developer,  this will provide much-needed accommodation to alleviate pressure on Homes of Multiple Occupancy (HMOs) and accommodate the city’s two universities’ aspirations to grow.

Proposals and designs will be available to view at an upcoming public exhibition on:

Thursday 13th February, 1-7pm

at Green Park Station Foyer, Green Park Station, Bath.

Members of the development team will be available to answer any questions.

Watkin Jones is a leading UK developer of multi-occupancy, managed, residential properties with a particular focus on student accommodation and build to rent sectors.



  1. So it’s going to simultaneously relieve pressure on existing housing and accommodate additional growth in student numbers? Of course the real reason is that it offers the highest and fastest return on their investment.

  2. Mr Houghton is right. I will have to find the time to go along and put my view that we(residents of Bath) don’t want/need any more of these as there is already more than enough provision.
