Designs for £790,000 Carlton Square upgrade revealed

People are being invited to have their say on new designs for an upgrade of Carlton Square, which were unveiled this week.

Gedling Borough Council have been working on the new designs with Waypoint, the company that manages Carlton Square and will be at the shopping centre this week to get the views of local people.

The £790,000 scheme to improve the Carlton Square shopping centre was given the green light by Gedling Borough Council back in February.

As part of the improvements there will be upgrades to the entrance areas, new paving and lighting changes to the car park layout and new street furniture.

It is hoped that Carlton Square upgrade will be finished in time for Christmas 2020.

This is the second consultation to be carried out about the Carlton Square revamp by the council. Local residents were quizzed earlier in the year about what they’d like to see included in plans to regenerate the area.

A council spokesman said: “We are still working together to finalise the elements that will make up the scheme but have addressed the comments you made.

“This next stage is to show you the sort of changes that could happen and to get your feedback. Do you like the proposals? Do you see any problems? Are there parts you really dislike? Let us know.”

Gedling Borough Council will be visiting Carlton Square at the following times and will be located under a Council banner:

Wednesday, August 14 between 12:00pm -14:00pm

Thursday, August 15, between 10:00am -12:00pm

  1. No mention of how to deal with the problem of the hundreds of feral pigeons and the splatter they leave…or the baffoons who throw down handfuls of feed and encourage them. This alluminium sheeting is sure going to look swell covered on pigeon poop, not to mention the public being bombarded with the stuff. Lets give them hundreds of new roosting sites eh?
