Plans to demolish ‘The Bruno’ pub in Carlton get go-ahead



Plans to demolish ‘The Bruno’ pub in Carlton get go-ahead

Plans to bulldoze a derelict pub to make way for three new shops and fourteen new flats have now been approved by Gedling Borough Council.

Work to demolish the Earl of Chesterfield pub on Carlton Road and replace it with “a three-storey mixed use building consisting of 3 x retail units and 14 x 2-bed flats will begin shortly.

The plans were approved by the council back in June.

Developers say in the proposals: “The site has now been vacant for over 12 months. Not only does an empty site not contribute to the liveliness of the town centre but it can also be unsightly, potentially attracting anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping.

“An empty plot of this size in such a prime location seems wasteful.”

They add: “The site’s excellent transport links and central location within Carlton make it ideal for both retail and residential uses.”

The renovations are part of the council’s long term plan to revitalise Carlton town centre.

    Not yet enough shops in the area ? And on a busy corner ? What are the council thinking ? Not pedestrian friendly

    Shops ? we do not need more shops . This will only add to traffic congestion , difficulty passing for pedestrians and annoyance for local residents . What do they think are on Carlton hill and in carlton square ? Nice to know the local council are still not considering or asking the locals per usual

    The end of yet another pub. They are being deliberately run down by their owners, who then sell the land saying the pub is not viable.
