The Beaconside Group does not own or lease the accommodation buildings.


We are aware that the landowners are working with the Home Office (Serco) on the proposed centre at The former university accommodation buildings 

We understand that whilst planning permission has been approved, there is currently no formal agreement between the landowners and the Home Office (Serco) with regard to the accommodation buildings


In the event that in the future, the asylum centre did go ahead, the Beaconside Group would:

Work with the landowners and the Home Office to ensure that the site is self-contained and secure, and any potential impact on our businesses, customers or staff is minimised.

not in any way benefit financially from the letting of the accommodation buildings by the landowners to the Home Office (Serco)
