SAVE LENNOXVALE FROM QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY REF-102936
Householders in the area are campaigning to protect and conserve one of the last remaining uniquely Victorian housing sites of its kind in Belfast. Sans Souci Park is a small crescent of family homes, together with sheltered accommodation for over 55s, and homes for new immigrant families.
Local residents are concerned that the picturesque area will be overtaken by student housing in a similar way to the Holyland area near the university.Over 2,000 students currently reside on one side of Sans Souci, in Queen's Elms student village. The university has proposed to build further accommodation for 146 international students. Those students will be housed in seven buildings - three new with four existing to be modified - on the opposite side of Sans Souci Park.
