Green light for intu Broadmarsh redevelopment
The council approved plans for the scheme which will see the shopping centre transformed – creating a vibrant new quarter for customers to shop, eat, relax and socialise throughout the day and evening.
The proposals detailed intu’s vision for a new southern gateway into Nottingham from the train station. There is also a focus on delivering improved pedestrian routes through the shopping centre - connecting more easily to the city and surrounding streets.
Adam Tamsett, General Manager at intu Broadmarsh, said: “We are pleased that Nottingham City Council has awarded planning permission for what is undoubtedly a very important scheme for the city. We will review the decision of the planning committee and we look forward to working with the city council to move the project forward.
“The decision is in keeping with the vast majority of opinions expressed during the public consultation when 90% of those who completed a questionnaire supported intu’s proposals. The scheme includes a number of new facilities and will improve the look-and-feel of intu Broadmarsh.
•A variety of places to eat, from ‘grab-and-go’ to sit-down restaurants
•A multi-screen cinema and new places to relax and play
•A new open street to complement Middle Pavement and extending to Bridlesmith Gate
•An improved new route through the centre from Lister Gate to Carrington Street, providing direct access between the train station and the rest of the city
•A new entrance on Middle Hill
•New high quality toilets, parent and child facilities and accessible facilities for wheelchair users, and new lifts and escalators.
The redevelopment would bring new retail brands, restaurants and leisure activities creating a more contemporary shopping centre experience. intu has worked closely with the city council throughout the planning application process to ensure its plans align with its wider vision for Nottingham city centre.Back
