Waterside is long-standing regeneration ambition for the city and is located to the southeast of the city centre and to the north of the River Trent.
The vision for Waterside is for it to become an aspirational, thriving neighbourhood complete with waterside living, family homes, leisure and retail opportunities as well as providing new green infrastructure.
The first phase of new housing development is already complete at Trent Basin and phase 2 is due to begin in the early part of 2018. Trent Basin is a new development comprising of low energy contemporary homes and apartments, located on the banks of the River Trent overlooking a unique inland dock. It is a waterside community that is design-led, with streets that prioritise people over cars and a focus on the sustainable.
Waterside will become a major new sustainable community for the city with its own identity and character. Located close to the city centre, it will provide a unique urban environment, providing the best of urban lifestyle in a modern, safe, vibrant and attractive riverside setting. As a residential-led development, with a large proportion of family housing to attract families back to the city, it will provide homes in a high quality environment. New homes will add to the quality and range of housing available in the area, and the new neighbourhood will connect’ with the city centre, and adjoining communities including Sneinton and the Meadows. High quality public realm will create an appropriate setting for new development and this will be crucial to the success of the regeneration of the Waterside. Central to this will be the new Riverside Path and its associated green infrastructure, providing an attractive and continuous open space for walking and cycling along the north bank of the River Trent.
Such large scale regeneration will raise the profile and image of the whole city, whilst enhancing the reputation of Nottingham as a place to live, work and visit. Regeneration benefits will be felt in the local communities as well as the rest of city and wider area.
