Plans for major 700,000 sq ft office development have taken a step forward 

An environmental impact assessment scoping request for a huge 700,000 sq ft office development in Nottingham has been approved by the city council. 

The scoping request, submitted by WYG Planning, will help determine which issues and impacts will be vital as part of the full planning application for the Unity Square development. 

Phase 1 of the development will welcome an office space of 10 storeys and 387,500 sq ft whilst the second phase will see 312,000 sq ft spanning over 14 storeys. The development will also benefit from associated parking space.  

The site was bought in 2015 by Sladen Estates and Peveril Securities with outline planning consent for up to 450,000 sq ft of Grade A office space, accommodation as well as retail and leisure space. This is a fantastic addition to Nottingham.
