A HOUSING association will put plans for the redevelopment of a university campus into houses and apartments on show this week.

The L&Q housing association bought Middlesex University’s Cat Hill campus, in Chase Side, in March after the university decided to centralise its courses in its campus in Hendon.

It plans to build a mixture of houses and apartments, and will put the proposals on show for the first time at two exhibitions in the campus on Wednesday and Saturday this week.

The developer has written to local residents to inform them of the events.

The campus currently hosts art and design courses and boasts dedicated facilities such as digital editing suites and a photographic studio.

However, the campus will close in September and students will move to a new £80 million building on the university’s Hendon campus.

The housing association manages more than 66,000 homes across London and the south-east, and is a non-profit organisation.

The firm will apply for planning permission after gathering feedback from local residents.
