Plans are being forward for a new retail and residential development in Clifton.
The site being earmarked is Fairham House, which is bordered by Green Lane and Langstrath Road, next to Glapton Academy.
The proposals are being put forward by Derby-based developer, Cedar House Investments, who have already worked on major projects in Nottingham, including East Point Business Park.
An exhibition of potential proposals will take place at Clifton Cornerstone today (Wednesday 17th August) from 2pm until 8pm.
Peter Gadsby, chairman of Cedar House Investments, told The Local News: “We would hope to have an application in to the council by September and would be looking at planning consent early in the new year.
“Construction could then start in the spring of 2017 with a projected completion date of Easter 2018.
“These much-needed new facilities will complement the existing shops and provide more choice for the local community. One of the shops will be a new discount food supermarket.”
Clifton residents have long been calling for a budget supermarket, with Nottingham South MP Lilian Greenwood opening discussions with both Aldi and Lidl and also starting a petition to pass on to each company’s CEO.
Both supermarkets have previously expressed an interest in coming to Clifton, with the latter saying that it is one of their “top-priority areas”.
The proposal is also expected to include apartments, but the finer details are yet to be revealed.
“Cedar House is a developer based in the East Midlands and we have done several recent successful schemes in Nottingham that involve new local retail facilities, as well as employment and housing development,” added Mr Gadsby.
“We will be asking people to comment about the plans and then our intention is to take account of anything that is said prior to a planning application being submitted to Nottingham City Council.”
