Mixed-use plan for Nottingham market buildings revealed

How the development might look

The last remaining derelict Sneinton Market blocks in Nottingham could be transformed into a mixed-use development after plans were lodged with the City Council for a residential-led scheme

Carlton Street Trading, the Nottingham firm behind the redevelopment of the nearby Peggers pub, The Bentinck Hotel next to the city’s railway station and Bar Iberico, wants to turn Avenues D and E of Sneinton Market into a mixture of 44 student flats, retail units and community spaces.

If the plans are passed, the building fronting the junction of Bath Street and Southwell Road will be demolished to make way for a four-storey block of apartments with ground floor retail.

The market buildings flanking Avenues D and E will be refurbished in line with the neighbouring 2014 Sneinton Market project, which saw Avenues A, B and C transformed. Avenue D and the new build will contain retail on the ground floor, with restaurant units next to flank Avenue D and Sneinton Market Square.

The scheme will be designed by Leonard Design. In a planning statement, the architect says: “The vision for this new development is to create a collection of buildings which truly integrate with their setting. The mixed-use development aims to preserve and enhance the local heritage setting acting as a continuation of the reinvigoration of the market area.”
