Nottingham car park to undergo £600,000 transformation

A new public space is set to rise out of a car park in Hucknall, near Nottingham.

Part of a town car park looks set to be transformed into a public space to create a focal point in Hucknall, near Nottingham. Campbell Design & Engineering has produced the outline design for the £600,000 project, which is also used as a marketplace. Tenders will be invited once planning has been approved. Director Chris Campbell and landscape architect Glyn Symonds have prepared a design that would complement the pedestrianisation of the high street. The area would be resurfaced and terrazzo floor tiles have been suggested as part of the paving scheme. Senior projects officer Sarah Daniels of Ashfield District Council said: “It would be transformed into a more attractive space with artwork, seating areas, hard landscaping and some planting. “It’s a very interesting and sensitive site between the library and the church where Lord Byron is buried.” Funding is partly from a section 106 agreement from Tesco and the Greater Nottingham Partnership.
