Hopes Sneinton will be ‘more attractive’ as long-awaited tower block site plans approved

Long-awaited plans for the redevelopment of land surrounding a 19-storey tower block in Sneinton have been approved, leading to hope from residents that the area will be ‘more attractive’. Five years after an application was first submitted to Nottingham City Council, 15 houses and a block of 41 flats look set to be built in land off Burrows Court.

The proposals put forward by Landmark Capital Investment have been knocked back on numerous occasions over issues with the Section 106 funding, which is used to mitigate impacts on the local community. The plans now state the developer would be asked for £182,000 in contributions if the plans are approved, including £136,234 towards affordable housing and £14,700 towards education.

The proposals, which were rubber stamped at the city council’s planning committee on Wednesday, June 22, follow the recent renovation of the 130-flat Burrows Court tower block. The new dwellings will be built around the 19-storey tower off Windmill Lane.

Nine houses facing the road would be three-storeys high and have three bedrooms, as well as a lounge, kitchen and bathrooms. Six of the houses would be two-storey with two bedrooms, with all houses having one off-street parking space.

The new three-storey block of flats would be built on top of the existing 107-space car park, with twelve being two bed and twenty-nine being one bed. Mark Heelis, from Sneinton, said he was in favour of the proposals.

“It looks nice enough,” he told Nottinghamshire Live. “If it improves the area and makes it look more attractive then that’s got to be a good thing.”

Ezabela Mieziete, 25, who regularly walks past the site also said it was a “good thing”. However some residents in Windmill Lane raised concerns over on-street parking.

Idrees Mansha, who has lived on the street for seven years said: “Parking spaces are limited as they are. I don’t know where some people will park, it’s a problem.” On the wider plans, the 34-year-old Boots admin worker added: “I’m not sure, it depends on the type of people that move in. It depends if they give them to first time buyers or are just trying to make more money.”
