A developer has been given the green light to build on the last remaining plot of the former Tyne Tees Television site in Newcastle, after a six-month delay.
Plans to build 227 new student flats at the former studios in City Road had been approved in principle by councillors in January.
However, it has taken until now for Newcastle City Council officers and the developer, CRSH, to conclude a section 106 legal agreement over the site.
The former TTTV site is already home to another major student development, as well as the Tube Court residential apartments.
The showery rain will clear through the evening to leave it mainly dry tonight with clear periods breaking through.
There could be some areas of mist and fog forming.
