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.
