A former industrial site in Nottingham has been sold for housing, with 15 new two and three-bedroom dwellings to be constricted.
Regeneration specialist Blueprint has bought the Trent Works Site in the Meadows, enabling it to build what will be its third development in the district.
Chief executive of Blueprint Nick Ebbs described the site as “fantastic”, adding: “Buying the Trent Works site enables us to provide more contemporary, low energy, design-focused homes and gives another opportunity to purchasers who might have missed out on our other Meadows projects.”
He added that local residents will get a chance to take part in a consultation on the plans.
The Meadows is an inner city area of Nottingham that has seen much urban blight in the past, but is rapidly improving.
Located conveniently close to the city centre, it now has two tram stops thanks to the southward extension of the Nottingham Express Transit system, while it is also home to Notts County’s Meadow Lane ground, with Nottingham Forest and Trent Bridge Cricket GRound located just across the River Trent in West Bridgford.
