Nottingham City Hub consultation held

Members of the public, businesses and others were invited to see details of and have their say on a landmark development to improve skills in Nottingham city centre, at a consultation event today (November 10).

The Nottingham City Hub is a planned £58million skills and training facility, to be built on Canal Street in Nottingham city centre. It will be managed by Nottingham College, which was formed when New College Nottingham and Central College merged earlier this year (2017).

Plans for the City Hub were opened to public consultation at the end of last month (October), and an open day and exhibition of the  project plans was held at Nottingham Contemporary art gallery (close the Hub site) today. PICTURED is Nottingham College Chief Executive John van de Laarschot speaking to a visitor at today’s open day.

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership – the private sector-led partnership which works with business and other organisations, including higher and further education providers, to promote economic growth across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire – is due to part-fund the Nottingham City Hub build by up to £30million from its Local Growth Fund (LGF) allocation, subject to receipt of Nottingham College’s detailed business plan. Further funding will come from Nottingham City Council and the College itself.

This Nottingham City Hub development will link in with the wider £250million development of the area, dubbed ‘The Southern Gateway’. This will involve redeveloping the intu Broadmarsh Centre, the rebuild of the Broadmarsh bus station and car park, and the remodelling of road and pedestrian routes in the area. This project is also being part-funded by the D2N2 LEP, which has allocated £10.3million from its LGF amount to improve Wilford Road and Wilford Street.

The Nottingham City Hub will provide high-quality college and community facilities, together with a new business hub. Nottingham College will also encourage new business start-ups, better collaboration between itself and employers, and will provide the wider community with improved training and skills resources. In addition, the Hub will house a new performing arts centre, student retail space, café and training restaurant and bar. The building will occupy six storeys in total. It has been designed by architects Bond Bryan.

The site will offer a new green space as a local community facility and the design of the public realm aspects of the site are being led by Nottingham City Council, in collaboration with local residents and the wider community.

All members of the public who would like to share their views on the scheme are encouraged to do so via where plans and images are available.
