Improvements on the way for Carlton Square
As part of our promise to improve our local town centres, we are working with the owners of the Carlton Square shopping precinct to see how the centre can be revitalised.
Waypoint, the company that manages Carlton Square (on behalf of BNP Paribas), are talking with us about how we can improve their shopping centre and the parking areas which are owned by the council. Plans include upgraded paving, lighting, seating and making changes to the parking and servicing layouts to create a more attractive shopping environment.
There are also plans to improve the main entrances to the centre and tackle unattractive and blank building fronts. We have already purchased and demolished a building within the parking area so the improvements can begin. You can see our initial analysis of the centre and ideas for improvement below.
The cost of the scheme is anticipated to be funded by Waypoint, Gedling Borough Council and be supported by grant funding, subject to an application to the D2N2 N2 Town Centre Fund.
Consultation on the first stage of our proposals has now closed. Thank you for your comments – this will help shape our detailed proposals for future consultation. We’ll provide a summary of the consultation responses shortly.
