Nottingham unveils station revamp plans
By Ben Cook Tuesday, 05 October 2010
Junior minister Norman Baker has unveiled a scheme to redevelop Nottingham railway station that will include the creation of new retail space, public space and facilities for cyclists.
The station revamp – which Nottingham City Council says will cost in excess of £60 million – will involve the restoration of Grade II listed buildings, the creation of new shops and cafes within the station, and a new public realm around the station.
Plans for the Nottingham Hub project, which is expected to be completed in late 2014, also include improved facilities for cyclists and disabled people.
The main partners involved in the development – Network Rail, East Midlands Trains and Nottingham City Council – will now appoint contractors for the first stage of the development, which involves the construction of a 950-space multi-storey car park and highway improvement works on Queen’s Road.
Work on the first phase is scheduled to begin in July 2012.
Nottingham City Council claims the redevelopment will result in the release of brownfield land on the station site that will lead to the redevelopment of 16,000sq metres of mixed-use space and generate around 900 jobs.
John Watson, chair of the Nottingham Hub project board, said: "The redevelopment of the railway station is considered by the business community as key to the future success of Nottingham's economy. It will act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the Southside of the city and create many new job opportunities."
