A new plan to demolish a York club and replace it with modern student accommodation has been submitted.
Developers want to knock down the derelict Bootham and Monk Ward Conservative Club building on Clarence Street.
In its place they would build a modern block of 34 student flats, over three and four storeys.
The proposal, by Clarence Street York Ltd, is the second scheme of its kind.
A previous version by the same company, submitted nearly a year ago, would have seen 43 student flats on the site.
It was later withdrawn, after council officers were critical of the scale of the scheme.
The building is just a short walk from the York St John University.
Planning documents state: “Located close to the city centre and with excellent pedestrian and public transport links, the proposed development will provide a unique and vibrant new student development.
“A local education establishment has already committed to taking a long-term lease on the accommodation ensuring that the property will be 100% utilised from day one.”
The club, which dates back more than a century, sold the site after members voted to merge with the Heworth Conservative Club.
A report submitted to planners says it has “very little heritage significance”.
It says the club is built on part of a terrace of houses dating back to around 1852 but that much of the current building is modern.
