500 jobs to be created as part of £60m plan

The former Imperial Tobacco site in Nottingham covers 48 acres and was purchased by Henry Boot Developments (HBD) last year as part of a multimillion pound deal. 

New plans reveal that the new development, named ‘New Horizon’, will provide up to 500,000 sq ft of industrial buildings and will create 500 jobs.

Justin Sheldon, regional manager at HBD, said: “On completion, our investment in the site will exceed £60 million, with the potential to create more than 500 new jobs. I cannot think of a better located site, capable of providing this volume and scale of development so readily accessible to the motorway, ring road, city centre and labour force.”

City Council committee reject Station Street office plans

Plans for the Station Street development have long been the talk of Nottingham however whilst it seemed the plans were going ahead smoothly, the City Council this week rejected plans for a 50,000 sq ft Grade A office scheme. 

Councillor Michael Edwards  said: “We want something beautiful,” reports the Nottingham Post, while Nottingham Civic Society said: “There does not seem to have been any attempt to to consider refurbishment of the front range of the existing buildings to retain and incorporate them into the new office development on the vacant land behind, which would have helped to mediate an appropriate scale for the new development, more in keeping with the scale of the historic fabric surrounding the site, and the Hopkinson shop in particular.”
