The Avitus Scheme Has Planned to Rake Place in Nottingham


The Avitus scheme that has been planned to take place in Nottingham has been approved by councilors. The residential scheme is valued as a multimillion pound development. Maryland Securities’ residential led scheme will be located in Alfreton Road in Nottingham. The development will see the city transform a three-acre site that was once the home of the former lace factory in to a mixed use site that will contain both houses and shops.

The Avitus scheme is expected to create about 650 jobs through the construction process of the scheme. It is also believed that more than 100 permanent jobs will be created in a variety of different sectors. The Avitus scheme is predicted to add £124 million to the area during the construction and another £26 million could be added to the economy from other areas like retail.

The scheme has had to be approved by the local Nottingham Council and it is thought that the scheme is now ready to move on the next stage and start work on the site. Maryland are thrilled that planning permission has been granted for the project and the Avitus is expected to reinvigorate an area of Nottingham that is one of the major arterial routes.

The new residential development will provide new accommodation that is of a high quality. The scheme will also improve the approach to the city from the A610, one of the main access roads in to Nottingham. The project was designed by Stephen Hodder MBE, who is an architect that was born in Nottingham and has been awarded the Sterling prize for architecture. Avitus will consist of five buildings constructed up to 8 storeys tall and built into landscaped courtyards. The residential part of the development will be complimented by seven ground floor retail and leisure units that will be located next to a Tesco that fronts on to Alfreton Road.
