Revised plans for 117 Lace Market apartments approved

How the scheme will look at Trivett Square

Revised plans for a 117-flat scheme in the Lace Market area of Nottingham have granted planning approval by Nottingham City Council just a week after revised proposals for the scheme were submitted.

Developer Adobe Nottingham initially submitted designs last year, which were tipped for approval by the Council’s planning bosses, but the Planning Committee had other ideas and called them “too stark”.

At a meeting in July last year, councillor Malcolm Wood, Labour councillor for the Bilborough Ward, said: “It looks so stark, and the windows leave me with disdain. I really hoped there would be more detail on the elevation.”

The scheme involves the creation of 117 apartments; 8 studios, 43 one bed units and 66 two bed units. The apartments would be provided over seven floors (including a basement level) and across five buildings (54 and 56 High Pavement, a new building between 56 High Pavement and 9 Short Hill, 9 Short Hill and a new building along Malin Hill).
