Nottingham Broad Marsh Master Plan unveiled

BDP has unveiled its plans for the regeneration of Nottingham city centre.


The new masterplan for the Broad Marsh project in the middle of the city will see more than 1,000 new homes built alongside around 20,000 sqm of office, commercial and leisure space.

Part of the old shopping centre’s structural frame will be retained under the plans, which outlines a strategic direction and design intent to transform the area, create opportunities to live and work and bring investment and employment for local businesses.

The masterplan will help realise the bold vision for the site following an extensive public consultation which attracted more than 3,000 responses and 12,000 comments.



BDP’s urban design director, David Rudlin, process, said: “This project represents a pivotal moment for the city of Nottingham.  

“Building on previous work, we have created a viable scheme that will deliver a lively and creative new urban quarter, breathing new life into this important city centre site,” he said.  

“We are also seeking sustainable solutions on how to reuse part of the shopping centre’s existing concrete frame to support the development of a range of new spaces that will offer services that will benefit the community.”

Councillor Neghat Khan, leader of Nottingham council, added: “It is exciting to see the Broad Marsh vision brought to life. I hope that the plan will show people we are committed to finding a solution for Broad Marsh and attracting the investment the area needs to support the transformation.

“BDP has taken this vision and turned it into a deliverable plan. This is such an important step to help transform the Broad Marsh area. We will continue to work with partners to find the investment and developers needed to make the vision a reality.

Broad Marsh sits at the heart of a £4bn regeneration programme. Current works are underway to create the new wildlife-rich ‘Green Heart’ which also will also act as a pedestrian route from the train station to the city centre.

Cllr Khan continued: “The surrounding area has already changed dramatically, from the new Car Park, Bus Station and Central Library, plus new pedestrian areas along Sussex Street and Collin Street with its new play area. Plus, there is more to come – with plans for the new NHS Community Diagnostic Centre in part of the old shopping centre and one of the biggest transformations is happening right now, with work on the Green Heart due to finish this summer. It really is an exciting time for the area.”
