Nottingham gets the go-ahead for new waterside development

Nottingham's ambitious regeneration plans moved a huge step forward when city leaders gave outlined planning permission for the 390m scheme led by English Partnerships, the government?s national regeneration agency and ISIS.

Outline planning has been granted for the Trent Basin scheme, located between Nottingham Canal to the west, and the racecourse to the east. The development is set to transform one of the city's most rundown areas into a modern riverside community, with flats and houses, offices, shops, bars, restaurants and waterside facilities.

Work on phase one of Trent Basin is expected to begin in 2008 - and is expected to take around two years to complete.

The scheme will see developer, ISIS Waterside Regeneration, working alongside English Partnerships to create a stunning new 28-acre waterfront housing district, together with a new riverside promenade, boater facilities, shops, a community centre and recreation spaces. Both organisations are the main land owners at the site.

Located just 20 minutes walk from the city centre, Trent Basin will feature 2,200 homes and will have a strong community emphasis - with family living, quality open spaces and sustainable development.

The scheme, designed by Notts-based architects Benoy, will connect the city core and the River Trent by opening up views to one of the UK's most striking river arcs which is currently obscured by derelict industrial premises. This space will be opened up to residents, workers and visitors, and public access to the riverside space will be created.
