Project background

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.

Nottingham City Council’s vision is to turn what is a predominantly light industrial and commercial area into an attractive and thriving neighbourhood. The councilhas adopted a Supplementary Planning Document to support the development of the area and for developer guidance.

The ambition for the Waterside Regeneration Area is for it to become an aspirational, thriving neighbourhood complete with waterside living, family homes leisure and retail opportunities as well as providing new green infrastructure. The project will deliver up to 1,200 new homes, retail and leisure uses.

Redevelopment of the site is progressing well with all of the available properties in Phase 1 of Trent Basin now sold and 70% of phase 2 sold. Phase 3 will begin in 2020.

Construction has started on adjoining sites. 84 apartments on the former Park Yacht Club site. A further 2 sites have secured planning permission. A Supplementary Planning Document for the area has been adopted by the Council.

The wider development will see a large proportion of family housing along with apartments, retail and leisure uses.
