Nottingham student flats get go-ahead

Plans to turn a Travelodge in Nottingham city centre into student accommodation have been given the go-ahead.

Nottingham Hotel Assets lodged plans to transform the hotel on Maid Marian Way into 121 student flats. The company has now been granted conditional permission for the scheme as long as it includes space for 80 bikes and submits a traffic management plan to the city council.

A planning statement reads: “This new development will provide high quality stylish student apartments, in the heart of Nottingham.

“All public areas will be stylish inviting, and designed to be accessible to all.”

The architect for the scheme, Self, says it will “celebrate the 1970s character of the building”, but that the outward appearance of the 10-storey tower “will change little”.

The statement adds: “By increasing the number of dwellings and therefore the number of residents in the local vicinity, the proposed development of this site will help to support the existing businesses and facilities thus ensuring their long term success, and the sustainability of this urban centre.”
