As part of a city-wide decommissioning programme to demolish some of the city’s most unsustainable council housing Nottingham City Homes are clearing sites in the Blackstone Walk and Arkwright Walk area.
This provides an opportunity to build quality homes that meet both local need and demand while addressing key issues such as tenure imbalance and lack of accessibility and connectivity identified with the council’s Meadows Neighbourhood Plan. The Council has now appointed Keepmoat Homes to build around 100 new market sale houses and apartments on seven sites along the Arkwright walk route plus an additional site on Blackstone Walk with an anticipated build timeframe of late 2016 to 2019.

Ahead of the construction of new homes the council commissioned Thomas Bow Ltd to reconfigure a walled play and parking area belonging to Crocus Fields childrens’ centre that currently prevents access along Arkwright Walk; this work completed in March 2016 and the route will reinstated later in 2016 following remediation and improvement works. Bollards will be installed to prevent vehicles from accessing Arkwright Walk beyond the children’s centre from Meadows Way, and will also act as a barrier to vehicles using Arkwright Walk as a through route following the housing redevelopment and highways improvements, which will include vehicular access to residential properties residential from Arkwright Street.
