Derelict doctor’s surgery could be turned into flats

A derelict doctor’s surgery in Nottingham could be given a new lease of life if plans for 15 flats are approved.

Plans have been submitted to Nottingham City Council for the former Bilborough Surgery, which opened in the early 1990s.

The building in Graylands Road was vacated in May 2021 after the Nottingham
Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) ended the contract and patients were transferred to other practices nearby.

Now, applicant Blidbros Ltd has applied to demolish the building and turn the site into 15 one-bedroom flats.

After receiving feedback on the original plans, the number of flats was reduced from 19 to 15 and the height of the building was reduced to remove an entire storey.

Documents with the application stated: “The new proposal has been designed to meet the needs of an assisted living provider who intends to manage the 15 residential units to support vulnerable people locally.

“Ultimately, the scheme has been designed to support a defined user group and positions residents within proximity to local amenities by making efficient, practical use of the existing site.”

The applicant’s market research found that Bilborough has a higher percentage of elderly, retired, disabled and people in care which supports the plans for assisted living flats in the area.

The flats would be built near local businesses along Bracebridge Road, which would “positively benefit the local economy and community”.

Eight parking spaces would also be provided if the plans are approved.

Nottingham City Council’s planning committee will decide on the application in due course.
