Franklin Ellis secures planning approval for Colwick resi scheme

A residential development in a Nottinghamshire riverside setting will go ahead after it secured near unanimous backing from planners.

McCann Homes is expected to start work on in Spring 2016 constructing 81 apartments in a new development on the banks of the River Trent near Colwick.

The £17m development has been designed by Nottingham-based Franklin Ellis Architects, which was also responsible for the award-winning River Crescent complex nearby. Andy Dowding, associate partner at the firm, says he believes the new building will provide momentum for further development of a site that councillors have long hoped to transform into a new riverside community.

“Nottingham’s riverside is almost an undiscovered gem and the ambition to develop it into a new community goes back many years,” he said. “With this development we are one step closer to making that happen, and it is a real pleasure for Franklin Ellis to again play an important part in driving progress.”

The Trent riverside is a special environment which requires sympathetic design, and in McCann Homes we have a client for whom quality and attention to detail are an important part of what they offer homebuyers. On that basis, we spent a long time discussing the site with planning officers and the city’s Design Review Panel before we finalised the scheme.

Construction of the 81 apartments is expected to be completed in 2018. They will mainly be two bedroom/two bathroom apartments, though there will also be a number of one- and three-bedroom properties.
