Gedling Borough Council has today revealed more details about plans to regenerate Carlton Square
New paving, lighting, street furniture and parking are being planned as part of redevelopments – which were approved by cabinet members yesterday.
The council will be working alongside Waypoint, who manage Carlton Square shopping precinct, to improve the facilities at the site, and also the visual appearance and parking areas.
The cost of the scheme is anticipated to be funded by Local Retail Fund (advised by Waypoint), Gedling Borough Council and supported by grant funding from Nottinghamshire Pre Development fund and, subject to an application, the D2N2 N2 Town Centre Fund.
The project is part of a wider regeneration programme for Carlton to deliver the Gedling Plan objectives of improving the image and facilities available in the area.
Works would also include improved legibility of pedestrian and vehicular routes within the site, along with new access to customer parking and service only areas.
The council will be seeking resident’s views though consultations at both draft and design stages of the development and if approved, regeneration of the site is expected to be completed by the end of October 2020.
Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke said: “This is great news for the residents of Carlton and it’s something which will be very beneficial to the borough. It’s really going to improve the square and give it a much needed lift. We’re working with the owners to turn this into an exciting business hub that will attract shoppers and retailers.”
Chris Moulden from Waypoint Asset Management said: “We’re pleased to be working with Gedling Borough Council to bring forward real improvements to Carlton Square Shopping Centre.”
