 Fresh plans for low-cost housing and apartments on site of former ‘Bruno’ pub in Carlton

New plans have been lodged to build eight low-cost homes and 14 flats for supported living on the site of the former Earl of Chesterfield pub in Carlton.

The boozer, which was also known by locals as ‘The Bruno’, got bulldozed back in 2017 as part of a plan for three retail units and 14 two-bedroom apartments.

But the scheme never materialised and the site on Carlton Hill has been standing vacant ever since.

The plans for the new development have now been submitted by Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) and are awaiting approval.

Nottingham Community Housing Asoociation have said they intend to secure grant funding to pay for the project from Homes England.

The development work is currently scheduled to begin ‘during the next financial year’.

The plans submitted to Gedling Borough Council (GBC) reveal there would be 19 parking spaces available and the entrance to the new properties would be on Southcliffe Road.

A report to Gedling Borough Council states: “The new dwellings are of a unit mix to suit local housing need. The houses are situated in a terrace along the northern boundary with a semi detached block on to Southcliffe Road to the south.

“We wanted to take the opportunity to build new houses that would be respectful to the existing buildings in the area in terms of design and materials and reinforce the public realm including the importance of Carlton Hill as a main route into Carlton.”

The move will be welcomed by nearby residents as the empty pub site has attracted flytippers since being demolished several years ago.

Gedling Borough Council planners will make a decision over the plans in the coming weeks.

  • What an awful looking set of buildings, I very mu h doubt, as the reporter states, that local residents will be happy with such dour architecture.
    Surely the previous design was much more suitable?!
    I for one will not back social housing on this piece of land.
