Leisure plans revealed for Grade II listed building in historic Lace Market

Plans to turn County House, a Grade II listed building in the historic Lace Market, into a mixed-use restaurant, bar, private members club and three serviced apartments have been submitted to Nottingham City Council.

Globe Consultants has submitted plans to turn the historic building, which has fallen into disrepair since being vacant for the past 11 years, into a 3,304 sq ft leisure scheme that would bring the 16th Century building back to life.

A planning statement that accompanying the application states: “County House had had no significant maintenance since it was vacated by the County Council in 1997.

“It is showing clear evidence of disrepair which is causing damage to the fabric of the building and the features of interest within it. The proposals will facilitate the sensitive adaptation of this Grade II Listed Building, bringing it back into a viable economic use and, crucially, secure its long term future.”
