Residential Developments Kernick Over. Leprosy Eliminated. The new residential block is to be designed to suit graduate students and SCR. 3 floors orientated in line with J and Parnaby wings. 6 apartments of 4 rooms to a bathroom, kitchen and living area. The Culture of Queens Impact of new construction Potential disruption to community Change in geographical location and numbers of students social segregation? More randoms? Less security and insulation. Commercial enterprise or Residential College?

All of these points were raised by us at the Council Meeting. The Council aims to retain the sanctity of the Quad and the community and give the students of Queens the best facilities possible. The only means by which this can be achieved is increasing cash flow eventually to stream into other divisions within college (Eakins, IT, sporting, performance etc.) This is well understood by all on the council and included in the New Project document.
