Rugby star gets go-ahead to redevelop nightclub site into student flats

A group headed up by a former Gloucester Rugby star have seen their plans to redevelop the site of former nightclub and lap-dancing bar approved.

City councillors voted last night (January 8) to give the go-ahead to the proposal to redevelop the site of the old King of Clubs and Minx nightclubs on Quay Street in Gloucester.

Westprop, the company behind the plans, is headed up by former Gloucester Rugby player Paul Doran-Jones, who enjoyed two spells with the Cherry and Whites.

Westprop worked with city-based architects Roberts Limbrick and SF Planning before submitting their plans to the local authority.

The plan is to demolish the existing buildings and provide student accommodation in the form of 115 studio units, a warden unit, student communal areas with ground floor internal alterations to 109 Westgate Street which is included in the site ownership.

The aforementioned King Club was also known as Envy and Lansons nightclub and also the Quay Club.
