STUDENTS are set to get a new home on Greenwich peninsula if plans for two new nine-storey blocks are approved.

The 264 units next to Chandlers Avenue with an entrance at East Parkside would house students from Ravensbourne College.

Both blocks would be connected by a ground floor which will feature a reception and communal areas.

Ravensbourne is already well-established on the peninsula thanks to it's eye-popping building beside The O2.

Three people have objected to the submitted planning application so far.

No date has yet been set for a decision by Greenwich Council planning chiefs.
