Plans have been drawn up to replace a Mapperley Plains car wash with new shops.

The proposals have been submitted to Gedling Borough Council and – if approved – would see the development of three single-storey retail shops and associated car parking to replace the existing IMO car wash that currently occupies the site.

24 car parking spaces for customers would also be created, with five of these being electric vehicle charging points.

In a letter to the council sent with the proposals, the applicant stated that ‘it is anticipated that none of the retailers will compete with the existing operators, who have been trading since 2013 when Sainsbury’s Local opened’.

Documents sent with the proposals state that two part-time employees currently work at the car wash.

The applicant said: “We do believe that this development will be of benefit to the growing number of new residential areas around Mapperley Plains and a retail use will prove to be far more attractive than a 1980s car wash building.”

Gedling Borough Council will now make a decision on the plans over the coming weeks.

  1. Personally we use the car wash and it is very popular with all the residents in the area, one of the retail units where the pets place is has not been filled what makes the council think they will fill others, is this just greed ,how many more empty shops do we need, Arnold is full of them and that is only down the road.
