A derelict supermarket site in Newport could be redeveloped to make way for 600 student flats and a hotel.

Plans for the former Sainsbury's plot in the city's Shaftsbury area also include proposals for a health centre and pharmacy.

A shop and a cafe is also proposed by Wye Valley City Projects Ltd, which has submitted outline planning permission to Newport council.

The plans will be discussed at a planning meeting on 19 November.
