Cedar House proposes £25m Waterside development16 February 2010
Cedar House has turned its attention to Nottingham's Waterside and submitted a planning application for a key landmark site purchased back in 2007.
The company is seeking planning permission to transform the former Sunlight Laundry on Daleside Road into retail, office and leisure space.
Peter Gadsby, chairman of Cedar House, said: "This scheme will facilitate investment in Waterside. The ambitious retail development we are proposing is much needed for the people of Sneinton to inject vibrancy into the area. We believe the scheme will initiate the transformation of Waterside and will be the catalyst for regeneration. We expect the scheme to provide more than 300 jobs, together with a further 200 construction jobs."
The five-acre development includes 30,000 sq ft of retail development and a mix of office and leisure facilities. The planning application for the £25m scheme follows a detailed public consultation.
Chris Carlisle, Cedar House managing director, said: "Our proposals were well received. There was unanimous support for better-quality shopping facilities to serve Sneinton residents. The opportunity for the creation of jobs for local people was also welcomed."
