Beeston Town Centre Development Phase Two

AMBITIOUS plans to create a vibrant new hub in Nottingham’s biggest suburb with new homes and leisure facilities will be revealed to the public this week.

Broxtowe Borough Council has launched a public consultation on its plans for phase two of the Beeston Square development which proposes 120 new homes, a cinema and greater choice of food and drink venues.

Outline building plans, CGIs and information on how to feedback on the initial designs will be available for the public to view in the foyer at Broxtowe Borough Council offices in Beeston between Monday 16th April and Friday 27th April.

Councillor Richard Jackson, Leader of the Council for Broxtowe Borough Council said: “This is an exciting time for Beeston as we kick-start the second phase of the Beeston Square development.”

“After speaking to more than 600 residents, we’ve listened to what local people want to see in the area. This has shaped the outline plans to create a mixed-use scheme that will bring modern new homes, a cinema, restaurants and cafes to the town centre.”

The two-acre site earmarked for development is currently being used as a car park and sits alongside the recently improved tram line. The development aims to revitalise Beeston’s night-time economy driving increased footfall to the town from the local and surrounding communities.

Councillor Jackson added: “I want to encourage local people, traders and people passing through Beeston to look at the initial plans and share their views with us. We are inviting people to tell us what they think via an online survey before the plans are submitted for formal planning approval.”

“We want to improve the look and feel of Beeston town centre so people spend more time enjoying leisure activities closer to home, whilst creating modern new homes for people who want to live in the thriving community.”Artists Impression of Cinema at night from Styring Street

The initial designs will be displayed at the Council Offices, Foster Avenue, Beeston, Nottinghamshire, NG9 1AB, which is open between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 4.30pm on Fridays.

The designs are also available to view online:

The designs have been developed by Nottingham-based Leonard Design Architects. The scheme is expected to start onsite in spring 2019, subject to planning approval and is being marketed by agents HEB and JLL.

  1. The ‘designers’ of this so-called developememnt should be ashamed … it is totally lacking in any imagination or design ability whatsoever .. it is clear it is only motivated by profit.. Beeston is an inteesting suburb in the centre of England ,, it has missed the chance to set an example of a creative response to the form of a new public space and housing in the new digital culture … shame on you Beeston! Particularly you have two fine schools of architecture in Nottingham and a very good School of Art to give you a range new ideas and a fresh approach to your urban opportunities.. perhaps you should think again? Have a competition? Why settle for this mediocre proposition when you could follow the example of so many towns and see architecture as not merely solving problems but through imagination adding both beauty and practicality to inspire, give pleasure and opportunity.
