A city in transformation: exciting times ahead for Nottingham

Mon 9th Dec 2019

by CQ

Steeped in legend and history and famed as the home of iconic outlaw Robin Hood, Nottingham is emerging today as an innovative, forward-thinking and fast-growing city. It is currently undergoing one of the biggest transformation programmes of any UK city in this decade, with the £2bn Southside regeneration set to enhance its reputation as a world-class destination.

“Nottingham’s Southside is rapidly gathering pace and taking shape, with an unprecedented number of cranes in the sky and fresh announcements from investors and developers now almost a daily occurrence. Galvanised by the transformation currently in process, this regeneration is stimulating investor interest and confidence in the city like never before, and each new development creates construction jobs in the short-term as well as a longer-term boost to the local economy. We’re seeing highly ambitious, impressive and inspiring plans for plots of previously under-used or derelict land, all of which are set to transform the southern face of the city and help it achieve its targets of bringing more residents, visitors and businesses into the city centre, contributing to the long-term prosperity of Nottingham.”

Lorraine Baggs, head of Inward Investment at Invest in Nottingham.
