Property investment and development group Conygar Investment has secured planning permission from the Nottingham City Council’s planning committee to develop what it claims to be the biggest regeneration scheme in the UK.

The new mixed-use scheme involves transformation of the 40-acre former Boots Island site in Nottingham, UK and developing over two million square feet including offices, apartments among others.

The project will include new homes, Grade A office space, creative market space, a five-star hotel, retail units, a ‘linear’ park and community space and student accommodation.

Conygar chief executive Robert Ware said: "We are delighted with the decision of the planning committee which follows a long period of consultation with the Council and other local stakeholders.

"This is a significant step toward the redevelopment of this important site for Nottingham and we will continue to work closely with the Council to bring the scheme forward as soon as possible."

The long-term phased project, which is planned to take up to 10 years to complete, is expected to create hundreds of jobs in the region.

Ware added: “Nottingham is a vibrant and creative city where several exciting developments are taking place and our plans for the site are a key part of this regeneration."

Conygar plans to commence work at the project during 2019, with the first phase of office and homes scheduled to be completed by 2020.

Nottingham City Councillor and the City's Planning Committee chair Chris Gibson said: “This is Nottingham’s biggest regeneration scheme to happen in decades and currently the largest in the East Midlands and perhaps the UK.”

Invest in Nottingham investment head Lorraine Baggs said: “These plans will breathe new life into a site which has sat unloved for many years and I’m confident they will be the catalyst our city needs to help strengthen our economy – particularly with the additional grade A office space which many businesses are interested in.”

Conygar is working with regeneration company Lavignac Securities to deliver the site, which is located between Manvers Street at the bottom of Sneinton and London Road.
