In September 2018 both Nottinghamshire Police and the Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service agreed to develop plans for a shared headquarters at the existing police headquarters at Sherwood Lodge, north of Nottingham. On 5 December 2019, Gedling Borough Council granted consent to their plans. Our initial work examined current operations and found that although there are 350 parking spaces, that fell short of the demand for 450 spaces. The development proposals would require an additional 450 spaces. To assist the masterplanning, we therefore designed additional parking areas, internal roads and circulation space. Our subsequent Transport Assessment assessed the ability of the local roads to accommodate the higher traffic flows, and we designed an improvement scheme for the A60/Burntstump Hill junction.
A belated post to welcome Rich Winn, who joins us to head up our Water Management team.
The cooling towers at Ironbridge Power Station were demolished today. A huge step forward in Harworth’s regeneration of the site.
Peter James Homes have announced that they are to build the 34 apartments on the former Trentside Social Club site on Wilford Lane in West Bridgford. Working with Mark Willmott of Space Architecture, we helped gain consent for the development in January 2019, so it is lovely to see the next step being taken to realise the plans.
Congratulations to Bob Woollard of Planning & Design Group (P&DG), the lucky winner of our East Midlands Expo 2019 business card raffle.
