Building work is well underway for a new apartment block on the site of the former Bruno pub in Carlton.

The former Earl of Chesterfield pub site on Carlton Hill will soon house 23 supported living one-bed flats after planning permission was granted by Gedling Borough Council.

The new apartment block will be called ‘Earl’s Court’ in honour of the pub that occupied the site previously.

The pub, known locally as ‘The Bruno’ was demolished back in 2017 as part of plans at the time for three retail units and 14 two-bedroom apartments.

Plans were then changed and it will now house flats for those requiring supported living.

Developers Pelham have said that “the design has been led by the care and support team’s requirements and by the complexity of the triangular shape of the site and that the new building will feature a ‘ship’s bow’.

When plans were first announced last year, Matt Barney, cabinet member for Adult Social Care and Public Health at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “These new flats will give vulnerable people the opportunity to live as independently as they can in the community.

“This could be young people making their first steps towards independent living or those who are leaving hospital or supported living and need to relearn skills before they return home.

“It’s an exciting opportunity that will undoubtedly offer many people with the stepping-stone they need to live a fulfilling and independent life.”

The development is expected to be completed this year.

  1. I am Arnold born and bread but my dad used to drink here and loved it sad its gone but still great pubs in arnold like the greyhound if you want to visit please coem up and see our town

  2. Supported living…fancy name for drug heads, alcoholics and who knows what. Framework tried it on with the old ‘Mill’ but they got told where to get off . No on site wardens to keep them in check either and side of the old folks bungalows? Wandering the streets bothering school kids for their dinner money so they can buy a fix , a spliff and a four pack? Should of stuck with original plans GBC for much needed retail but you sold us out AGAIN, bit like Carlton Square. Upside, means more money for Arnold Lad and his Pubs I suppose…or shutters for the shops that are closing there….

  3. This could be young people making their first steps towards independent living or those who are leaving hospital or supported living and need to relearn skills before they return home.

    “It’s an exciting opportunity that will undoubtedly offer many people with the stepping-stone they need to live a fulfilling and independent life.”

    In other words people who have been sectioned under the mental health and home office restrictions such as section 37-41 act. (Pedophiles ect.)
    We have elderly there and children living on the street and a school.
    We will be watching guaranteed

  4. People who end up living in supported living flats, never move on, because the care company’s don’t like having empty flats. Independent living is far different, which means living in a flat without the need for support. There will probably be an influx of agency support workers working here, after about a year, as the novelty soon wears off, as staff and residents alike, soon realize what a trap they’ve got themselves into. Agency staff are the last resort just before somewhere closes down.

  5. As someone who’s chronically sick and disabled I am hoping to acquire on of these properties so as soon as the information is realest I will be applying. For the record I don’t have any issues with drink or drugs. I have MS for the record and the only drugs I take are the legal ones.
    I’m currently living on a one bed fat, and I pay rent of 530 a month, so if I can rent one of these flats I will.
