Plans for a multi-million pound redevelopment of Intu Broadmarsh were given the go ahead by Nottingham City Council.
The plans will transform the shopping centre by creating a vibrant new quarter for customers to shop, eat, relax and socialise throughout the day and evening. In addition to the remodel, the approved plans also includes the creation of a new route through the development to form a new southern gateway into the city centre.
Adam Tamsett, general manager at Intu Broadmarsh, said: “We are pleased that Nottingham City Council has awarded planning permission for what is undoubtedly a very important scheme for the city.
“The decision is in keeping with the vast majority of opinions expressed during the public consultation when 90 percent of those who completed a questionnaire supported Intu’s proposals.”
The approved work forms part of a 150 million pound investment by property retail group Intu, which owns two-thirds of the shopping centre, and Nottingham City Council, which owns the remaining third.
Martin Breeden, regional director of Intu, added: “We’re delighted that our plans for Intu Broadmarsh have received approval. Along with our work at Intu Victoria Centre, we now have a great opportunity to create something special for Nottingham. We look forward to working together with the Council to move the project forward."
