Where there is a world-class transport interchange, world-class businesses will want to come. We are planning for the future now by putting in place the developments that will support more housing, shops and offices.
The train station is at the heart of a number of Nottingham’s key regeneration areas. Once transformed, it will help enlarge the city centre, extending outwards, along with the city’s new Creative Quarter and 56.5 hectare Enterprise Zone, which are encouraging greater opportunities for investment.
The station redevelopment is a key part of the wider regeneration of the Southside of Nottingham.
To the south and south west, economically disadvantaged areas like The Meadows will soon be linked to the city centre by the new tram lines to Clifton and Chilwell. They will pass through The Meadows and link to major employment sites such as the Ng2 business park, already home to internationally renowned companies like Speedo. Experience shows that where the tram runs, regeneration follows.
Nottingham’s multimillion pound investments in the tram network, and redeveloped train station, combine to create an unrivalled transport network that will give Nottingham a significant advantage over many other UK destinations.
