Plans revealed for new BTR scheme in former hotel

How the scheme would look

A developer has revealed plans to demolish a building in the Forest Fields area of Nottingham and turn the site into build-to-rent flats.

Nigel Amorfa of Inovo Consulting has submitted plans to Nottingham City Council to knock down a building that is currently used by homelessness charity Framework and turn it into 36 apartments.

The building, on Mount Hooton Street, has had a varied history, including uses as a residential care home, hotel and – latterly – as a base for the charity.

A planning statement with the application reads: “There is great potential for this site. A potential that preserves and enhances the Conservation Area, playing on its strengths and allowing for a development befitting its prominent corner plot. The existing building provides little to enhance this plot, or the Conservation Area in which it is situated.

“The development will engage with it’s surroundings, becoming a building of significance, visual interest and
architectural quality within it’s environment. It has the potential to act as a catalyst to rejuvenate the area and
provide much needed accommodation for the locality.”
