Nottingham City Council’s planning committee has approved Rainier Developments’ plans to convert a brownfield site into a housing development in England, UK. 

The committee voted in favour of the project after it was initially recommended by planning officers.  

The 0.62-acre derelict site, located on Waterway Street near Nottingham’s train station, will see the construction of 191 one and two-bedroom apartments. 

The site is currently occupied by an outdated two-storey office block from the 1970s known as Waterway House, which will be demolished as part of the development.  

Rainier land director Will Blacker said: “Waterway House has an important role to play in supporting the city’s rising demand for homes, so I am delighted to see this development edging closer to reality having worked closely with the city council planning team.  

“The site is set within an area of Victorian heritage that is still seen to this day in other nearby buildings which we wanted the new development to respect, and so the new-look Waterway House will reflect this. 

“Developments of this type only serve to enhance Nottingham’s profile as a desirable destination to live and work – especially with the nearby links to rail, tram and bus – and I am looking forward to seeing the development come to life.”

The development will offer 26 car parking spaces, including charging points for electric vehicles (EVs), as well as bicycle storage. 

It falls within the Canal Quarter, which is one of the city’s strategic regeneration areas, as outlined in Nottingham City Council’s Local Plan. 

In January this year, Rainier revealed its plans to work on new proposals for Sandy Lane Business Park and Sandy Lane Industrial Estate, north of Coventry Canal Basin.
