Welcome to the public consultation for the next phases of Trent Basin. This interactive document will guide you through our proposals and ask for your feedback at the end through some short surveys.



question_answer  Skip to the surveys

We are still in the design process, and our vision section below sets out what we would like to do, but this is not final. Now we want help from residents and businesses in the local area to provide feedback on our ideas.

We are also in discussions with Nottingham City Council, ahead of our planning application, to ensure the technical elements of our design work to their planning guidance.

The consultation closes on the 16th of December 2020.

If you want to provide more detailed feedback, you can book a virtual drop-in session with the development team on the
booking page here.

The feedback provided in this consultation will be used to influence future design considerations.

Explore Our Vision


Artist's impression of some riverside housing in Trent Basin future phases.

Our vision is to provide green sustainable living in contemporary, stylish homes with a lower carbon footprint.

Creating a neighbourhood, that is connected and walkable for school, work and leisure, with shared spaces for meeting neighbours and play. Whilst also forming a community that is living responsibly, enjoying nature and caring for the planet.

This vision looks to deliver a 21st century living environment that has been informed by the City’s plans for Nottingham’s Waterside as per the
Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the area.

With 130 new houses and 69 apartment units, Trent Basin Phase 4 onwards will build upon the existing neighbourhood to connect those living in the city with access to waterside and nature.

Heart of the Waterside

The basin's significance means it will be the local centre for the wider riverside community as it grows over the coming years.

The development will provide public access to this amazing resource, bringing waterside leisure activities to the heart of the neighbourhood.

Trent Basin is within a short walking distance of many of Nottingham's treasured green spaces, with Colwick Woods and Country Park to the northeast and Victoria Embankment to the southwest.

A new pedestrian footbridge over the river will bring The Hook and Trent Fields to Trent Basin's doorstep.

Local green space
Indicative walking routes to local green spaces*

* Estimated walking times to the nearest 5 minutes, based on proposed and existing Trent Basin development. Only one of three possible footbridge locations shown.

A Connected Basin Park

The green space will also be brought into the heart of the development itself, concentrating in our very own Basin Park to the north of the basin.

Set back from the water, the Basin Park will give the whole community a car-free, pedestrian and cyclist-friendly space, all year round.

A new E-Mobility Hub will provide a centralised location for community activity, as well as creating a safe barrier between the park and the basin.

This route from the basin to Daleside Road will provide footfall for local business and amenities.

People Friendly Space

We want to create a people-friendly space that supports family living in a safe environment. But what do we mean by a people-friendly space?

These spaces will encourage social interaction, children’s play and public amenity, but still provide room for practicalities such as deliveries, drop-offs and disabled parking.

A secure and designated parking barn, with electric vehicle charging, will facilitate most of the 265 parking spaces across the neighbourhood. This will allow a significant amount of the new public space to be designed for the community rather than parking.

Courtyard Living

In addition to the Basin Park and people-friendly spaces, a sequence of smaller, sheltered residential courtyards will be connected by semi-private pedestrian routes.

These courtyards provide a safe place for social gatherings, children’s play and neighbourly interaction.

The courtyards are all designed as people-friendly spaces and allow for drop off and disabled parking.

Waterside Living

Trent Basin will be a place of blue water and green space that is close to the city, promoting healthy living and sustainability.

A new riverside path through the existing tree line and a new bridge over the basin will open up the waterside frontage.

Additionally, a new pontoon and access to the basin for water sports will be created, unlocking access to the 1-acre inland basin for the first time since it fell out of use in the 1990s.
