Planning bosses give thumbs up to major Hockley mixed-use scheme

How the scheme would look

Nottingham City Council planning chiefs have given the nod to plans to redevelop a disused building in the heart of Nottingham’s Hockley area and turn it into a new mixed-use scheme.

Clarendon Nottingham, which is a partnership between Aon and developer Bmor, wants to transform the site at 38-46 Goose Gate, which was most recently used as a restaurant.

The council’s planning committee will vote on the scheme next Wednesday (August 17).

The plans outline a new building on the adjacent Woolpack Lane, while the ground floor fronting Goose Gate would include 3,000 sq ft of commercial space below reconfigured and refurbished upper floors.

Altogether, the building could be home to some 100 student bedrooms.

Under the plans, the majority of the existing building on Goose Gate will be retained and the heritage frontage will be preserved and enhanced with new shopfronts and windows.

Architect on the scheme is Leonard Design.
