Apartments plan approved for former factory in Nottingham

Plans from Hockley Developments for the conversion of a Victorian factory at 2 Holland Street in Nottingham have been approved by the City Council.

The application site currently consists of a range of two storey light industrial buildings which would be converted into 22 residential apartments and partially demolished.

A new two storey extension is also proposed to southern boundary of site.

A document from the Council reads: “The floorspace of the proposed flats are considered to provide good sizes of units and their layout has been comprehensively revised. There is a range of units onto Holland Street, all with living/kitchen rooms onto the street and bedrooms either above or to the rear. This more consistent approach to the layout has greater regard to the amenity of future residents and is considered to be appropriate to the building and area.

“Communal entrance points provide good access and circulation and refuse storage is located adjacent to Holland Street for convenient servicing. External communal space has been created through the partial demolition and conversion of the existing buildings which, subject to further details by condition, is considered to provide further amenity for future residents as well as allowing sunlight and daylight to penetrate the layout.

“External alterations to the buildings are minimised through the reuse of existing openings and respect the character of the buildings through the retention and refurbishment of the existing fenestration.

“The proposed new build element to the south-east corner of the site is designed as an extension of the existing building at this part of the site, and a new pitched roof will also improve the appearance of this building. Whilst the two proposed flats in this building will adjoin the boundary with the adjacent light industrial units off Palin Street, it is noted that the revised layout of these flats are orientated into the courtyard space of the proposed development and, subject to appropriate protection under the proposed environmental noise condition, are considered to be satisfactory within the given constraints.”
