    "I am delighted that the proposal to convert the Highfield House Hotel to student accommodation has been dropped and that this valued local facility will remain as a hotel."

    "At the same time I am concerned that new proposals have been put forward to abandon plans for family housing, including an element of affordable housing, on the site of the former Portswood bus depot in favour of more student accommodation."
