Plans to build 23 new sheltered accommodation flats and an office on the site of a former pub in Carlton could be given the green light next week.
If approved, the apartments would be built on land previously occupied by the Earl of Chesterfield pub on Carlton Hill.
The boozer, which was known to locals as ‘The Bruno’, got bulldozed back in 2017 as part of plans for three retail units and 14 two-bedroom apartments.
But the plans were never progressed and the site on Carlton Hill has been standing vacant ever since.
A report is due to go before Gedling Borough Council’s planning committee next week and it recommends that the development plan is approved.
The application was originally submitted by Nottingham Community Housing Association back in November 2019 and is for the erection of 23 social rented sheltered housing one bedroom two person flats. An office will be constructed on the ground floor too.
Whilst under the control of Housing Association there will no permanent on-site staff
and the apartments will be occupied by vulnerable adults with some support needs.
A total of 13 parking spaces are to be provided with vehicular access from
A bin storage area is proposed relatively close to the site entrance and two small ‘courtyard’ areas of amenity space are proposed, one when entering the building from the car park and another close to Southcliffe Road.
The council’s Planning Committee is due to decide whether to approve the scheme at their “virtual” meeting next Wednesday (September 9) starting at 6pm. The meeting is scheduled to be webcast.
Live meeting audio will be available via the Council’s website
