Green Light for Major Nottingham Development

Posted by Construction Industry News Magazine on 4th April 2024 -


Rainier Developments’ proposals to transform a brownfield site near Nottingham train station into a housing development have been approved by the city council.

Plans to build 191 one and two-bedroom apartments on the derelict 0.62-acre site on Waterway Street were voted through by Nottingham City Council’s planning committee, after the proposals had initially been recommended by planning officers.

While the development encourages the use of public transport with nearby rail and tram connections, 26 car parking spaces will also be provided, including charging points for electric vehicles and bicycle storage.

The site’s existing two-storey 1970s office block, also known as Waterway House, will be demolished as part of the redevelopment of the site.

The location falls within one of the city’s strategic regeneration areas under Nottingham City Council’s Local Plan – known as the Canal Quarter. 

Will Blacker, Land Director at Rainier Developments, said: “Waterway House has an important role to play in supporting the city’s rising demand for homes, so I am delighted to see this development edging closer to reality having worked closely with the city council planning team.

“The site is set within an area of Victorian heritage that is still seen to this day in other nearby buildings which we wanted the new development to respect, and so the new-look Waterway House will reflect this.

“Developments of this type only serve to enhance Nottingham’s profile as a desirable destination to live and work – especially with the nearby links to rail, tram and bus – and I am looking forward to seeing the development come to life.”
