Plans to build a new mixed-use scheme on the site of a disused pub in Nottingham city centre have been submitted to the council.

A&Q Properties (Nottingham) want to demolish the former bar on Alfreton Road and build 25 studio apartments above three retail units on the site.

The pub was most recently-known known as The Local, previously The Windmill – named after a much older public house on the adjacent land. The building dates from the 1960s.

A planning statement accompanying the application reads: “It has been demonstrated that careful consideration has been given to the site and the context of the surrounding area in designing the proposed scheme: In accordance with policy guidance, therefore, development should be acceptable in a sustainable area with scheme is of a good quality standard.

“Several key design objectives have been highlighted, which have been used as a basis to develop detailed plans for the site: scale, massing, and rhythm which is appropriate for this site: It is considered that the proposals respect the form of the surrounding area and would sit well within this local context.”

The scheme is being designed by JN Designs.

The application will be considered by the council over coming weeks.
