Broadmarsh Bus Station design unveiled

Broadmarsh Bus Station design unveiled

Demolition of the current car park is underway, and, following the plans for Nottingham College’s City Hub, the designs of the new Broadmarsh bus station and car park have been revealed.

Features outlined in the proposal include some 1,397 parking spaces (250 more than before), retail units on Carrington Street and Collin Street, a “welcoming” bus station environment, three digital advertising screens, and electric charging points for cars on each floor.

Mindful of the diverse and changing landscape in the area, the proposals for the new development are sympathetic to both the heritage of Carrington Street and the new designs for intu Broadmarsh.

The new development should significantly improve the approach to the city centre from Nottingham Station.

Solar panels will also be installed on the roof of the building, so it will be able to generate and use its own energy.

The new retail units will have double height windows and face on to Collin Street and Carrington Street, which will be pedestrianised under the Broadmarsh plans, to complement and enhance the existing city centre offer of shops and the intu Broadmarsh redevelopment.

In addition, an application has been submitted for consent to operate three digital screens as part of the façade of the Broadmarsh Car Park.

These would be installed on the corners of the building at Collin Street and Middle Hill, Collin Street and Carrington Street and finally at Canal Street and Carrington Street.

Councillor Jon Collins, Leader of the City Council, said: “We want an appealing, modern and bright new building on the reinvigorated Broadmarsh landscape

“The redeveloped building will include a new bus station, prominent high-quality shops that will boost the area and complement the intu Broadmarsh redevelopment.

“Additional car parking spaces will give the city more of what it needs and mean more people will be able to visit the new Broadmarsh area.

“These are ambitious plans, and with ambition comes challenges, but I encourage people to view our proposals and give their views about the application.”

The submission of the planning application means the public are now being invited to comment on the designs as part of the planning application process.

The new designs will be considered at Planning Committee on Wednesday 21 February 2018.
