Union Terrace U turn

It looks like the Labour Council are going to back off from their plan to sell the Union Terrace car park. Pressure from residents and traders against the sell off has grown since the Council Leader made a public announcement that he backed the sale to St Johns University.
With the Councils local plan (the LDF) for the City Centre not yet agreed, any sale would have been premature.
It is possible that a scheme which retains car and coach parking on the site, while also providing additional floorspace for the University expansion, may now be evaluated.
