Plans to bulldoze ‘The Bruno’ and build new shops and flats submitted


Plans to bulldoze a derelict pub to make way for three new shops and fourteen new flats have been submitted to Gedling Borough Council.

Documents which can be seen online outline plans to demolish the Earl of Chesterfield pub, on Carlton Road and replace it with “a three-storey mixed use building consisting of 3 x retail units and 14 x 2-bed flats”.

Developers say in the proposals: “The site has now been vacant for over 12 months. Not only does an empty site not contribute to the liveliness of the town centre but it can also be unsightly, potentially attracting anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping.

“An empty plot of this size in such a prime location seems wasteful.”

They add: “The site’s excellent transport links and central location within Carlton make it ideal for both retail and residential uses.”

The Earl of Chesterfield, which was known as ‘The Bruno’ by locals, has been empty after closing its doors for the last time back in 2015.
