Plans to demolish pub for student accommodation given the green light

Controversial plans to demolish the Nottingham Legend pub on Lower Parliament Street, Nottingham to make way for a new student scheme have been approved by the city council.

A five storey building is to be erected next to the National Ice Centre, hosting 40 studio bedrooms. Ground floor communal amenity spaces include a lounge, kitchen, cinema, and laundry rooms.

Punch Pubs & Co are behind the proposals for the site, which currently holds a detached two storey 1960s building.

The approval comes despite numerous objections, with concerns including the loss of a family orientated public house, a loss of jobs, potential disruption from student noise, an increase in pick up and drop off traffic, the noise and pollution from vehicles using Lower Parliament Street impacting students, the building being too tall, impacting sunlight and daylight, and overlooking neighbouring properties, as well as concerns over building design.
