Application submitted to transform Intu Broadmarsh

A planning application has been submitted for the transformation of the Intu Broadmarsh shopping centre in Nottingham.

The move follows several months of public consultation, design work and discussions with the city’s planning chiefs.

Plans include a new southern gateway from Nottingham main line train station with improved pedestrian routes through the shopping centre and easier connections to the city and surrounding streets.

The development will also aim to bring new retail brands, restaurants and leisure activities to create a more contemporary shopping centre experience. In particular, proposals include increasing the range of places to eat and a introducing a multi-screen cinema to give shoppers additional reasons to visit the shopping centre and stay for longer.

More than 2,500 people expressed their views on the redevelopment proposals during a public consultation, exhibition and meetings with 89% of 1,600 people formally surveyed saying they were in favour of Intu’s proposals.  

Martin Breeden, regional director of Intu, said: “Nottingham has always been a top 10 retail city but, in the last couple of years, it’s really had the sense of a place on the way up. There’s the massive extension to the tram system, improvements to the railway station, increasing amounts of urban living and new independent stores and restaurants popping up and, of course, our own improvements to Intu Victoria Centre.

“Our plans for Intu Broadmarsh will build further on that progress, bringing new streetscapes, a new cinema and a wider retail and catering offer. We have been in the city for over 40 years with Intu Victoria Centre and are fully committed to creating something special for Nottingham.”  

If the planning application is successful, construction work could start on site as early as the first half of 2016 for completion by the end of 2018.

The proposals form part of a £150 million investment by Intu and Nottingham City Council in the Broadmarsh area, which includes the refurbishment of the car park and bus station, together with improvements to the public realm.
