New housing plans for former Nottingham bus station

New homes are planned for a former coach station in Nottingham.

Nottingham City Council has approved plans by applicant MyPad for 40 homes on the vacant site in Beechdale, once home to the Yeates Bus and Coach Station.

Both houses and flats are planned, with the number of bedrooms ranging from one to four. A total of 20 per cent of the properties will be affordable.

The plans were lodged in November 2021 and were approved by the council on August 21 this year.

The brownfield site, adjacent to Gateway House in Beechdale Road, is allocated in the local plan for housing.

The developer said the homes are “visually attractive as a result of good architecture”.

Documents by Player Roberts Bell Architects said: “The vision for the development is to create needed housing within a high-quality environment and sustainable development.

“Proposed dwellings are designed to be semi-detached along with a small block of flats, two-storey in scale fronting Beechdale Road, and all under pitched roofs.

“Each dwelling is provided with one or two parking spaces as well as visitors spaces being distributed across the scheme. Aside from the flats which have a communal garden, each property has an individually enclosed rear garden space.”
