A wide-range of projects were applied for and given the go-ahead in Nottingham last week. There were a variety of plans which progressed in the week ending July 1.

Among the most significant were two plans for the demolition of a historic tobacco warehouse and the repair of a shop destroyed by a car crash. A proposal was also put forward for a new bakery to open.

Meanwhile a student plan was approved for a city centre street. And the go-ahead was given for a recently opened shop to add a garden centre to its offering.

9-storey building to be demolished

Nottingham City Council received an application to knock down the former John Player tobacco warehouse on June 27. The landmark 9-storey building on Wollaton Road, which was one of three in the city to store tobacco, will be torn down before student accommodation is built on the wide University of Nottingham Jubilee Campus.

The demolition of the building, which has stood off Triumph Road in Lenton since the 1930s, has been described as a shame by the Nottingham Civic Society. The university plans to create a 280-bed halls of residence near the site as part of Project Xenia – named after the ancient Greek concept of hospitality.

Until 2017, the site was occupied by warehouses which had served the John Player tobacco firm. However, the University of Nottingham said Total Reclaims Demolition will remove it by September.

Destroyed wedding shop to be repaired

A city shop severely damaged in a car crash will be repaired after the council gave the go-ahead to planned repairs on June 30. Police were called to Dream Wedding Dress on Derby Road shortly after 2pm on December 27, and workers had to be called in to prop up the building after the crash.

The store’s owner, Kathryn Parsons, had previously told Nottinghamshire Live of the ‘devastating’ moment she discovered a car had crashed into her building. A planning document stated the building had “suffered severe impact damage”, meaning the shop and residential apartment upstairs had to be vacated.

The existing damaged windows and doors will be replaced like for like or with similar windows and doors. The first-floor balcony at the front of the building, looking onto Derby Road, will be replaced using a timber flat roof structure with LED flashing detailing, while the timber shop façade will be returned to how it looked before the crash.

New bakery may open soon

On June 28, the council received an application for a plan to open a new bakery. A change of use from retail to hot food takeaway has been applied for, so that ‘Anmool sweets and bakers’ can open in Berridge Road.

Garden centre coming to B&M

On June 30, a plan to add a garden centre to a national brand’s new store was approved. A garden centre can now be opened at the Castle Marina Retail Park’s B&M.

B&M have said this would create six additional jobs. The garden centre will occupy part of the hardstanding area to the back of the B&M Homestore.

The proposal is expected to cost B&M £200,000. They have said this will deliver a “cost effective solution” by meeting the company’s requirements for the provision of external garden centres with its new store openings.

The existing listed building will be retained and only internal changes will be made to preserve the heritage assets. Developers say the final proposals are the result of a detailed design process that responds to the built and natural context of the site.
