Nottingham is centrally located in the East Midlands and well connected within the UK. The Waterside Regeneration Area is located to the south-east of the city centre to the north of the River Trent. It is less than a mile from the city centre and a long-standing regeneration ambition for the city. The City Council is a principle land owner together with private land and lease owners.
Waterside will become a major new mixed-use riverside sustainable community with its own identity and character. Located close to the city centre, it will provide a unique urban environment, providing the best of urban lifestyle in a modern, safe, vibrant and attractive riverside setting. As a residential-led development, with a large proportion of family housing to attract families back to the city, it will provide homes in a high quality waterside environment.
High quality public realm will create an appropriate setting for new development and this will be crucial to the success of the regeneration of the Waterside. Central to this will be the new Riverside Path and its associated green infrastructure, providing an attractive and continuous open space for walking and cycling along the north bank of the River Trent.
