Planning permission has been approved for the demolition of the Phoenix pub in Gedling to make way for a new build three-storey apartment block containing 26 self-contained flats, a secure cycle and bin store and ancillary landscaping, after being approved by Gedling Borough Council’s planning committee.
There will be 11 two-bedroom flats and 15 one-bedroom properties at the Shelford Road site.
Planning documents note the pub is vacant and it is understood not to have been operating for approximately two years.
Hockley Developments, the Nottingham-based development company, are behind this new development.
Architectural Manager, Ewan Cassell, said: “When we saw this site come to market, and we looked at the size of the site, we wanted to come up with a modern, apartment block spread over 3 floors, which would offer the local population a nice mix of one and two bed apartments, many with study areas, to suit the home office/hybrid working lifestyles of the working population.
“With the development being served well by local transport – buses are every 8 minutes in the mornings into the centre of Nottingham – we expect these apartments to be very popular when they come to market later this year.
“We expect to be on site this month, and will complete the development by Summer 2022 – and we shall keep the name the Phoenix for this exciting new development.”
