PLANNING: Flats proposed for former ‘Bandook Restaurant’ car park in Calverton

Four flats have been proposed on former car parking site currently occupied by a private car washing business.


An application has been received by Gedling Borough Council from Mr Nick Grace of Grace Machin Planning & Property, The Lace Market, Nottingham acting as agent on behalf of Mr D Hayer for the proposed construction of a residential development consisting of 4no. flats on a former car parking site currently occupied by a private car washing business.

A Design, Access & Heritage statement provided by Reform Architecture and Interior Design Ltd. in support of the full planning application states that the site is located within the centre of the large village of Calverton and is bordered on the south side by what was previously ‘The Bandook’ restaurant and its parking allocation, to the west by The Nook Road with associated properties; and to the north and east by Mansfield Lane. On the opposite side (east) of Mansfield Lane is St Wilfred’s square which supports a small shopping precinct with convenience stores, shops, medical centre, library and other communal facilities.

Planning documents further advise that there are two flats at ground floor and two above proposed. In total this provides 1no. 1-bedroom flat and 3no. 2-bedroom flats. The proposal includes a shared amenity garden to the rear for the two first floor flats with the two ground floor units having their own dedicated amenity space directly adjacent with their own private access.

Four parking spaces are proposed via an undercroft to a concealed parking court at the rear
of the site which will help conceal vehicles and refuse storage from the public realm. Secure cycle storage is also proposed.

It is believed that the Bandook restaurant was closed in early 2022 and has remained vacant. Planning documents suggest that the property and associated grounds have been marketed for let ever since, with no signs of interest.
