Food wholesale firm re-submits residential developments plans

The revised plans

Plans to to build a five-storey residential scheme just outside of Nottingham city centre have have been resubmitted to Nottingham City Council – four months after it denied planning permission for the same scheme.

Wholesale food group Asian wants to build 14 one-bedroom and two 4-bedroom apartments at Raleigh Street in the city.

In February, the plans were thrown out because the Council said the building was too tall.

Now, Asiana has resubmitted the plans after the architect on the scheme, Rayner Davies, introduced additional elevation articulation in the form of curtain walling to address
comments with regards to impact upon street scene and conservation area, while the lift and smoke shaft have been reduced in height and set back.

A planning statement said: “The proposed scheme will create a high quality building which is
respectful to its setting and the conservation area. This will make a positive contribution to the street scene by developing the vacant plot to Stoneleigh Street and Raleigh Street.”
