Members of the public are invited to learn more about the plans to develop Nottingham’s 40-acre former Boots Island site at a two-day event on 11, 12 September.

The outline proposals – which were submitted for planning in July - will be displayed at Urban Rooms on 38 Carrington Street between 2pm and 7pm. There will be an opportunity to ask the development team behind the mixed-used scheme what it means for the city.

Conygar Investment Company plc – the firm which purchased the site in 2016 – and regeneration specialist Lavignac Securities will be on hand on both days to answer questions about the site, which lies between Manvers Street at the bottom of Sneinton and London Road.

Christopher Ware of Conygar said: “As one of the most high-profile sites in Nottingham, it is important that we engage with and listen to people’s views on our plans to transform this site into a new community.

“Having already received feedback from the business community and key stakeholders, we now wish to continue this conversation further with the general public. We’re looking forward to meeting people and answering questions about the scheme and hopefully gaining their support for it too.

“We’re well aware of the site’s history and its several false dawns over the years, so we’ve been working closely with Nottingham City Council to ensure the plans fit into the wider vision of the city.”

The development will see the site, which has laid derelict for many years, benefit from new homes, grade A office space, creative market space, a five-star hotel, retail units, a ‘linear’ park and community space as well as new student accommodation to the city.

Greg Miller-Cheevers of Lavignac, said: “Our plans for a mixed-use scheme including homes, retail, office, creative and leisure spaces will complement the other developments happening in the city; we’re very much looking forward to sharing this vision with the wider public.”

Lorraine Baggs, head of inward investment at Invest in Nottingham, added: “This event is a fantastic opportunity for people who live and work in the city to learn more about the plans which aim to breathe new life into a site which has sat unloved for many years. The proposals will help strengthen the local economy by bringing hundreds of new jobs to the city.”

The event is open to the public and people are welcome to drop in at any time to see the plans and speak to a member of the development team.
