CSC submits plans for Victoria Centre in Nottingham

June 13, 2011


Capital Shopping Centres (CSC) has submitted a detailed planning application for an extension of the Victoria Centre in Nottingham to Nottingham City Council.

The UK’s leading specialist developer, manager and owner of pre-eminent regional shopping centres CSC is planning a partial redevelopment and extension of the Victoria Centre, which will increase the current scheme of 981,000 sq ft (91,000 sq m) to 1.5 million sq ft  (140,000 sq m). The extension will provide a new department store,  39 additional retail units, and deliver enhanced catering and leisure including restaurants, a health club and 10 screen cinema to the Victoria Centre and create more than 2,000 permanent new jobs in the city.

As well as the extension of shopping, catering and leisure facilities the proposed scheme would also deliver a new modern bus station, replacement car parking, improved pedestrian access and public realm.

CSC has also pledged to maintain Nottingham’s design heritage with the architecture developed in line with Nottingham’s City Centre Design Guide and using materials consistent with those already in the city’s building fabric.

Martin Ellis, Construction Director for CSC said: “The Victoria Centre has been at the heart of Nottingham for 40 years and with over 23 million customer visits a year is the city’s prime retail destination. Our vision is to provide an improved retail and new leisure destination to help maintain Nottingham’s position as a top ten regional centre.”

Plans for the Victoria Centre received the backing of 92% of local shoppers during a recent public exhibition.  The proposals were also backed by Cllr Jon Collins, Leader of Nottingham City Council, who said: “Nottingham is open for business and these plans are a great sign of confidence in the future of our city centre.  It is great to see deliverable plans put forward that will create thousands of jobs and make Nottingham an even more attractive place for people to shop and enjoy themselves.”
