Plans for landmark apartments given the go ahead

Plans to build for 21 apartments to rent in the Meadows have been given planning permission.

Nottingham LiviNG, part of Nottingham City Homes (NCH) was been given the go ahead to build the new two-bed apartments on the site of the former Meadows Police Station at Nottingham City Council’s Planning Committee on Wednesday 21 November.

The development is a landmark one, and will act as a gateway to the Meadows opposite the Experian building at NG2.

The development’s main frontage looks onto  Meadows Way and Queens Drive, and the building will sit by one of the city’s main road and tram routes. It will include 14 parking spaces and will be accessed via a new junction off Rutland Close that will connect it to Meadows Way.

Meadows resident Sandra, who lives near to the former police station site on Saffron Gardens said: “Something needs to be done to that site and it’s good that work is finally going to start soon.

“It’s been empty for a while and these new flats will make the area look better. The Meadows is changing and improving and this can only help.”

Nick Murphy, Chief Executive at NCH, said: “This is an exciting new development for the Meadows. We have been building new social housing here, and we plan to build more, but these market rent apartments will offer people another housing choice in the Meadows.”

“Now we’ve been given planning permission, we are looking forward to getting on site and creating an impressive gateway to the Meadows and NG2.

Councillor Linda Woodings, Portfolio   Holder for Planning, Housing and   Heritage at the City Council, said   “Nottingham requires a mix of all different   types of new homes, which meet the  differing needs of local people.

“Due to its size and location, the former Meadows Police Station site provides an opportunity to re-develop the space, which was no longer in use or fit for purpose, to create new homes ideal for smaller families, couples and single people”

NCH will now appoint a construction partner in time for work to start in 2019.
