He heard the debate regarding the issue and defended the expansion which will have various benefits to the city such as social, economic and cultural. He also promised that he will work hand-in-hand with the communities s they are making the plans.
At the current stage, they are trying to integrate to the planning application the buildings’ scale and their density. They are also taking into consideration the accessibility of the site. Bosses from the university disclosed that they have already received the feedback of the public and they are considering those as they are making their plans.
