A key reference document on Nottingham’s massive regeneration plans has been launched at MIPIM today before an international audience.
Regeneration in Nottingham 2016: City of Opportunity – featuring schemes such as the imminent intu Broadmarsh transformation and the state-of-the-art Biosciences building – is a document for those with an interest in Nottingham’s changing landscape.
The full colour, 16-page book has been published by Nottingham City Council’s development and growth department. It features illustrated maps representing large areas of the city with a specific regeneration and development focus including:
- University and Enterprise Corridor: the centre for life sciences and innovative industries including Enterprise Zones at the city’s Boots campus and Science Park and major investments at the University of Nottingham’s Innovation Park
- Creative Quarter: an established and growing retail and business quarter with a focus on creative industries featuring projects at BioCity, the National Videogame Arcade and Convention Centre opportunity
- Southern Gateway: revitalisation of the southern corridor into the city including Broadmarsh centre and area transformation, station hub and castle improvements
The document also features Nottingham castle transformation plans. In addition to these strategically focussed areas of regeneration, the brochure contains details of projects that help to transform neighbourhoods and ‘smart infrastructure’ city-wide projects and initiatives.
Leader of Nottingham City Council, Councillor Jon Collins launched the regeneration book along with a ‘pitch book’ featuring 30 top city and county investment and development opportunities. Both documents were revealed at the D2N2 stand at MIPIM, the world’s largest property event.
Coun Collins said: “We are pleased to launch these two important documents at MIPIM – which is the ideal place to showcase all Nottingham has to offer.
“The city council is determined to make sure Nottingham compares with the very best of European regional capitals and is leading its transformation to one in which people choose to live, can get quality jobs and enjoy a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
“Our reputation in the cutting edge sectors of life sciences, clean technology, and creative digital continues to gather momentum, as well as being widely recognised for smart innovation in sustainable transport, housing and energy. These documents help to underline our commitment to our city’s future.”
The digital version of the regeneration book is available on the city council website
