Former textiles factory to become homes

A former textiles factory in Nottingham is set to be turned into 15 three-bedroom houses.

Nottingham City Council has granted conditional planning permission to QD Commercial Group Holdings to demolish the former Lacetex building on Holland Street in the Hyson Green area of Nottingham to make way for the new homes.

Each property will have its own private rear garden and sufficient room to the front of the dwellings for car parking.

A planning statement submitted on behalf of QD by Henry Mein Partnership read: “A change of use to residential not only utilises an existing developed brownfield site but will reduce noise pollution and the amount of traffic flow to and from the site, allowing for a safer environment within this residential community.

“Generally we feel that these proposals have addressed the key issues required for achieving high quality design, for a sustainable, mixed community environment.”

QD also operates its £68m-turnover from Nottingham and employs over 1,000 people.
