£100m city centre scheme takes a step closer

How the scheme would look

A new £100m scheme in Nottingham city centre has taken a step forward after planning permission to demolish buildings on the site was granted by the city council.

The plans include a 145-apartment scheme, alongside a 406-bed student development and associated public realm.

Now, the green light to knock down four commercial buildings on the site has been given the green light.

Developer MRP put forward plans in 2019 for the site at the top of Queens Road in Notitngham city centre that would bring forward 406 student beds and 245 residential units across two buildings.

In 2019, national planning and development consultancy Lichfields was appointed by the developer to deliver the planning consent, and the parties held a public consultation on the proposals

Lichfields planning director Ian Kettlewell said: “This development displays investor confidence in Nottingham and plays a key part in the regeneration of the Canal Quarter.

Consarc has been named as the architect on the scheme.
