Plans to further develop Nottingham's historic Sneinton Market get green light!

February 22nd 2018

Further plans to redevelop Nottingham’s Sneinton Market have been given the green light by Nottingham City Council following a recent committee meeting on 21 February 2018

Leonard Design Architects, the global architectural practice which is headquartered in Nottingham, was appointed by Carlton Street Trading as part of the wider regeneration of the area to provide design concepts which are in keeping with the heritage of the market

Leonard Design has been heavily involved in the regeneration plans and has revealed updated sketches showing the transformation of the vacant buildings on Avenues D and E, adjacent to the market, into an exciting mixed-use retail, leisure and residential scheme.

The new development will comprise of a three-storey building with student accommodation (36 new flats) and ground floor retail units with further improved stalls for street food and structures for pop-up shops. The final overall offering will be much more dynamic, aiming to attract more local businesses into the Creative Quarter and provide places for the public to shop, eat and relax.

John Morgan, director at Leonard Design Architects, said:

“We’re thrilled to now be able to move forward with the plans to regenerate Sneinton Market. The mixed-use scheme is a significant redevelopment project and further contributes to the ripple effect we’re now seeing across the city of vacant heritage buildings being given a new lease of life.”

The designs have been drawn up specifically to give Sneinton Market improved presence on the corner of Bath Street and Southwell Road.

The redevelopment of Sneinton Market forms part of a broader programme of regeneration activity by Nottingham City Council to Build a Better Nottingham, which also includes work to improve the public realm in the Creative Quarter.

John added: “The successful planning approval is testament to Nottingham City Council’s significant investment which has acted as the stimulus for the regeneration of key areas of the city such as the Creative Quarter. The redevelopment of these two vacant buildings, improved signage and presence will see Sneinton Market become a lively place to live, shop, eat, drink and visit for many years to come.

“Work will begin on the new buildings in summer 2018 and the new student accommodation is planned to launch for the beginning of the 2019/20 academic year.”
