For much of the last decade, I’ve spent my morning commutes walking through Nottingham city centre, looking at the multiple sites earmarked for development and hoping things would come forward, only to get frustrated at the lack of progress. Having now spent the last 11 months commuting between rooms in my house, so much has happened that I think I might struggle to recognise my city when I return!
Considering the year we all endured in 2020 and the start we’ve seen to 2021, it would have been reasonable to expect regeneration projects in Nottingham to have stalled, but a look at the news articles over the last few months tells a different story.
In September we had the news that planning had been approved for Canal Turn, the first phase of the Island Quarter project which, in the words of developer Conygar, “will create a leisure destination, a range of facilities and green public realm space for Nottingham city centre”.
