The redevelopment of Carlton Square has begun following the approval of the contractors and confirmation of a successful funding bid for £350,000 of external funding.
Gedling Borough Council has confirmed that Lindum Group is the appointed contractor to revitalise the shopping centre car park and pre-construction works have now begun on site.
This coincides with the announcement that the D2N2 will provide £350,000 to the project from its Local Growth Fund through the locally managed N2 Town Centre Programme.
Works will include a new entrance to the car park from Burton Road and a new car parking layout in the northern car park, including identified spaces for electric vehicle points.
There will also be safer and improved access between the car park and shopping area including a new pedestrian route to the shopping centre from Burton Road. HGV traffic will also be separated from visitor traffic by the creation of a dedicated unloading area.
In preparation for the main works starting, the Council has already begun some enabling works, with others in the pipeline, which include:
