Local Plan - City Centre Quarters

Areas identified for regeneration focus. The City Centre has areas where specific uses cluster together or which have a particular character or identity. The Nottingham-Beeston canal is at the heart of the Canal Quarter and although new development has already significantly enhanced its setting, considerable further potential exists for refurbishment of historic buildings, sensitive new development and new and enhanced pedestrian routes. At their eastern edges, the Canal Quarter and the Creative Quarter overlap in recognition of their common and complementary characteristics. In this area, policies relating to both the Canal and Creative Quarters will apply The Castle Quarter is centred on Nottingham Castle, perhaps the most famous landmark in Nottingham which has a strong international identify linked with the legend of Robin Hood, along with the historic former General Hospital and many other historic buildings. There are major opportunities for heritage led regeneration to enhance the tourism and leisure offer and to deliver better connections to the centre of the City The Royal Quarter lies immediately west of the retail core and includes a variety of building types and City Centre uses with a focus on entertainment uses - such as the Royal Centre which comprises the Royal Concert Hall and the Theatre Royal and Rock City. The area includes many former civic buildings, heritage assets and Nottingham Trent University City Centre campus. This dataset should be referenced alongside the Local Plan for Nottingham City and the Core Strategy which guides development in Nottingham City
