It’s a really exciting time to be living, working or studying in Nottingham.
As well as a multi-million pound redevelopment of the historic Nottingham Castle, renovation of the new City College and Broadmarsh Central Library complex, the regeneration of Nottingham’s Waterside is really taking shape.
Situated in a prime central location, along the River Trent, the redevelopment of this former industrial area will connect many parts of the city centre, such as the Meadows, Sneinton and Colwick with the river and canal network.
What is the Nottingham Waterside Regeneration area?
The Waterside Regeneration area covers 250 acres of land to the south-east of Nottingham City Centre. Despite its proximity to the River Trent and Nottingham Canal, it’s an industrial area that has never realised its full development potential, until now.
Before Pelham Waterside
The Trent Basin area of the past was used traditionally for shipping and sporting endeavours. It has been home to a Pleasure Park, sports grounds, the cricket equipment manufacturer Gunn and Moore (which still exists today) and is adjacent to the former site of White City Speedway dating back to the 1920s. Fans could catch the ferry from Trent Bridge in nearby West Bridgford to watch races.
With its exceptional waterside location, plans are in full swing to transform the area by creating around 2,000 contemporary new homes over the next 10 years. In addition to providing a vibrant riverside setting to call home, there will be all of the leisure, retail and community facilities you’d expect to find in a thriving neighbourhood.
In addition to providing the space for restaurants, cafes and creative projects, the development will offer retail, business and employment opportunities for local residents, all contributing to a positive neighbourhood vibe.
These exciting changes realise a long-standing ambition and kick-start a new era for Nottingham, bringing jobs, visitors and economic growth for the benefit of the entire city - and new residents are already reaping the rewards.
Building new homes
At Pelham Waterside, we’ve already reserved over 90% of our first phase of homes and we welcomed our first new property owners to the neighbourhood in October 2020.
We’re busy preparing to release the next phase of new homes shortly. We’re proud to be making our mark on an area that will benefit many for decades to come.
We know that every property owner is unique in what they look for in a neighbourhood, that’s why we’re providing a development that has appeal for everyone from first-time buyers and downsizers to young professionals and families.
Our neighbouring site, Trent Basin is a huge success story too, proving popular with home-buyers who are keen to invest in sustainable living without compromising on an aspirational lifestyle.
The area’s proximity to Nottingham’s City Centre is a huge attraction for those working in the city and more plans are in place to improve the daily commute. These include improvements to cycling and walking paths and upgrading green space along the riverbank connecting the Nottingham and Beeston Canal towpath with the Victoria Embankment through to Colwick Park.
A new cycle path is also being considered to link with West Bridgford, improving connectivity for leisure activities and regular journeys. Both new and improved connections would provide a safe, pleasant and environmentally-friendly route for commuters on foot and by bike.
