Nottingham latest waterside development continues to grow
Just a stone’s throw from Nottingham city centre, a new neighbourhood is starting to emerge from what was once mainly industrial land.
A number of new residential developments have already been built in Nottingham’s Waterside, with a steer from the City Council’s planning guidance, which sets out the council’s vision for the area, Now, with approval for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge over the River Trent and a blueprint for further enhancement of the area, more changes are on the horizon.
It has been a long-standing council ambition for the Waterside Regeneration Area between Trent Bridge and Colwick Park to become a new sustainable community. The 250-acre area along the banks of the River Trent connects the city centre and surrounding neighbourhoods including Sneinton and the Meadows.
Transformation of the Waterside began back in 2015 with the creation of Trent Basin. The award-winning development of low-energy, sustainable homes and apartments overlooking an historic inland dock, has acted as a catalyst for investment and for other developers to build hundreds of new homes.
Trent Basin is being built in phases and, when complete, will comprise 300 low-energy homes. Phase one and two are already complete, and a planning application for the future phases was recently submitted to the city’s Planning Authority. The proposals for future phases at Trent Basin highlight the continuing confidence developers have in Nottingham and the Waterside area.
