A Planning Application for a residential development has been submitted, on behalf of developer Abode Nottingham Ltd, for the site on High Pavement and Short Hill. The scheme proposes to convert and restore four Listed buildings and to develop two new five and seven storey buildings, all around a central courtyard.
Much of the site has been empty since bombing raids in the Second World War devastated the area. The development includes Grade II Listed buildings, to 9-10 Short Hill and 54-56 High Pavement, several of which have been unoccupied for many years.
The site is located on the Lace Market escarpment, looking down onto the southern approach from London Road and frames the landmark view of St. Mary’s Church.
Nick Keightley, Director in charge, comments: “The project represents a great opportunity to mend the historic fabric of the area, sympathetically restoring the street scene to Short Hill, as well as the cliff frontage to Malin Hill.”
The proposals would see 117 dwellings created, ranging from one bed apartments to three bed units, which would be private rented accommodation, with 24 hour on site management. Pedestrian access to the scheme would be from High Pavement, with vehicular access from Hollowstone into an underground car park.
This is an important site in the historic heart of the city that has been vacant for decades. We are delighted to bring forward a scheme that will bring it back to life.
