Six-storey apartment block planned near The City Ground in West Bridgford

Derelict land near The City Ground could be transformed into a six-storey apartment block.

The “unattractive” land, on the junction of Radcliffe Road and Pavillion Road, has remained vacant since its demolition more than 10 years ago.

But developers have put forward proposals to give the site a new lease of life, creating in its place a major mixed-use development.

Applicant Keystone Homes is proposing the creation of the 22-apartment scheme, which would also include space for commercial use on the ground floor.

The development would be based on the corner of Pavilion Road and Radcliffe Road.

Planning documents submitted to Rushcliffe Borough Council state that the building would be part six-storey, part four-storey in height.

It would include undercroft car parking for six vehicles as well as bin storage, cycle storage and landscaping.

Seven of the 22 apartments, which range between one and two bedrooms, would feature balconies looking out onto Radcliffe Road.

In the planning documents, the developer said: “The development of 22 apartments will attract additional residents to the area.

“This should help to increase local expenditure and create economic opportunities for local residents.

“The application site has been vacant for over a decade following the demolition of the former Trent Bridge Service Station.

“The vacant state of the site has a negative impact on the appearance of the locality.

“It is therefore considered that the site currently has a negative impact upon the visual amenity of the surrounding area.”

The development could be heard at a Rushcliffe Borough Council planning committee meeting at a later date.
