Trent Basin and Nottingham Waterside

Trent Basin lies on the north banks of the River Trent, within an established industrial estate. The site has been designated for re-development for a number of years and its proximity to Nottingham City Centre (within 1.5 miles) and its great spot on the river Trent opposite green open space, creates a wonderful opportunity for new housing.

Together with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), developers Blueprint Regeneration and a team of designers, including masterplanners URBED, put together proposals to build new houses on the site and create some beautiful public open space around the existing basin - a water inlet off the River Trent.

The site used to be an employment site, housing a number of warehouses and industrial sheds. It is also surrounded by businesses, ranging from a Skate Park to a Tile warehouse. This it what makes the site unique; we believe that our proposals for housing will compliment nearby land uses, creating a mixed use, sustainable neighbourhood, in which people can live, work and enjoy.

Our proposals have gone through a lengthy design review process to make sure our development on Trent Basin is of the highest quality. This process follows footprint®, and this makes sure all aspects of the scheme promote a sustainable development – from making sure there are schools and fresh food shops close by, to constructing energy efficient houses and building layouts that promote walking and cycling.
