One very appropriate name for a new apartment complex in Carlton is raising smiles locally after property developers decided to make light of a the fact the building was formely a police station.
Constable Court is the name they’ve chosen for the 67 apartments that have been created out of the old Carlton Police Station building on Foxhill Road.
Documents submitted to Gedling Borough Council back in November 2019 reveal that Sergeant Court and Commander Court were also under consideration by developers.
And the new name is raising smiles locally.
Carlton resident Tom Greenwood said: “Its a great name. It’s a pity the apartments are quite roomy otherwise they could have called them cells.
“Maybe they should consider renaming Foxhill Road… Letsby Avenue.”
Linda Welsh lives in Gedling but passes the building in the way to work.
“It’s something to smile about, she said.
“People weren’t happy at first that the police station was being closed and replaced with flats but it’s great that they’ve made light of the situation.”
The one-bedroomed apartments are currently being offered at around £650 pcm for rent on a number of property websites.
