The third phase of Nottingham’s waterside neighbourhood, Trent Basin, has been completed, with brand-new homes now available to occupy.
The riverside community – which sits on the north bank of the Trent, a mile from the city centre – is a development by Blueprint, with Lindum Group undertaking the construction of the third phase to further open-up Nottingham’s basin-side area to new homes.
Comprising high-quality, low-energy homes, the scheme is a sustainability-focused residential developments that has commenced the regeneration of 250 acres of brownfield land, which will ultimately make it one of the largest regeneration areas of its kind in Europe.
With over 100 homes now complete across the development, the next phase of over 100 homes secured planning consent earlier this year with the plan to commence the next wave of new homes in 2024. This future phase will include a new pocket park and provide land for an important mobility hub funded by Nottingham City Council following their successful grant application to Transforming Cities.
Samantha Veal, CEO at Blueprint, said: “We’re very pleased to see the brilliant progress taking place on site at Trent Basin, with our unique, new neighbourhood bringing this former industrial land into the future and opening up the riverside and basin to the wider public.
“Promoting healthy and sustainable living is an important part of what Blueprint does, our partnership with Lindum Group has helped to continue to shape Trent Basin as a model of responsible development.
“As we prepare to enter the fourth phase of the scheme in the autumn, we’re looking forward to continuing to breathe new life back into this historic corner of the Midlands.”
Trent Basin is also home to a number of community initiatives, including Flo Skatepark and Makers Yard, which occupies a 9,000 sq. ft building and brings art, live events, exhibitions, street food stalls, and independent markets to the local community. The majority of homes in the third phase have been sold off plan, but a limited number are still available to purchase through the agents, William H Brown.
Tom Damarrell, Construction Manager at Lindum Group, added: “This has been a very rewarding project and it is fantastic to see this phase coming to an end, ready for people to move into this brilliant new, in-demand neighbourhood.
“One of the most significant aspects of this job, is that we are taking what was brownfield land and turning it into a sustainable development, using environmentally friendly, low energy housing to create a greener future.
“The project has been a fantastic example of how we can improve the local area, not just through bringing new homes, but by providing housing developed with a local supply chain. Trent Basin highlights our commitment to leaving the communities we work and live in better than when we started, through high quality eco homes and using a local workforce to put money back into the Nottingham economy.”
