Two important sites in Lenton are being regenerated which together will transform the neighbourhood around Lenton Boulevard.
In the area around the Savoy Cinema, five outdated high-rise blocks have been demolished and replaced with a mixture of family and older persons housing.
In addition to replacing low quality, non-traditional housing with attractive, high quality, energy efficient housing, 161 of which will be affordable homes, these developments will help to give the neighbourhood a more sustainable mix of tenancies and households.
The new Council housing development on the former Lenton tower blocks site began in November 2013 and will complete in November 2017. There are 142 new affordable homes, comprising of 54 Independent Living apartments (Parmer Court) 16 bungalows, 62 family houses. There are also 2 commercial units with 10 flats on Derby Road.
The first phase of the development, Parmer Court, completed in 2016
Nottingham City Homes will also own and rent the 62 family homes, which allows them to raise funds against the assets to invest in further affordable, high quality housing schemes.
17 new Council homes are being built on the former Church Square shopping precinct at the heart of the Lenton development. The site was falling into disrepair, was outdated and no longer fit for purpose.
The scheme is scheduled for completion in March 2018 and the homes will be the first owned by Nottingham City Homes’ Registered Provider subsidiary.
The former Sandfield Centre (previously the Cottesmore school), was demolished ready for development several years ago, and has been bought by Persimmon Homes for residential development. Persimmon’s proposed development is for 96 homes - 10 apartments and 86 houses (2,3 and 4 bed) – and 20% of these homes will be affordable. A planning application decision is due by the end of 2017.
