New homes complete regeneration in Radford

Building works have now started at the site of what was The Globe pub in Radford, Nottingham, completing the final phase of regeneration to this once derelict inner city area, and providing a total of 27 new homes. Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) was keen to purchase the abandoned building having completed a 67 unit scheme immediately adjacent to the site in 2016. With additional funding from Nottingham City Council and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), planning permission for the site was granted in 2017.

The development was carefully designed by NCHA’s Pelham Architects, who were keen to maximise the unusual triangle shaped site. Head Architect Mike Price explains more: “We used the site to dictate the shape of the building, ensuring that every piece of developable land was used. It adds character to the area, and ties in with the existing buildings."

This area had previously been a hot spot for anti-social behaviour, something which the new design addresses: “The properties have been designed so that they all look out onto all three streets, encouraging a livelier and safer environment.”

Geda Construction have been contracted to provide the building services. Geda’s General Manager Aaron Hughes commented “We are delighted to be working again with NCHA and Pelham Architects to deliver new homes on this previously derelict site.

“We have worked together closely from initial concept stage to design a scheme that best utilises the site available and provides good quality housing to a regenerated community.”

The site is due for completion in Autumn 2018. Further details on how the properties will be allocated will be available nearer the time.
