Conservation Area suggestion for the Old Meadows

OMTRA and community activists are exploring the idea of a conservation of the Old Meadows with City Council officers.

Objectives might include –
– celebrate and protect the older brick faced houses, and their fixings;
– protect the rooves;
– protect the Bulwell stone front walls;
– offer more protection against poor quality rear / lean-to extensions.
Next stage is to write a first bid up and consult with local residents, perhaps in October.

Concern that allowing the demolition of buildings on Glasshouse Street loses significant and beautiful frontages and eaves.

Recognition that student flats along Canal Street and Pemberton Street will replace an ugly car park, but that the frontage along Canal Street looked too crude as an unbroken length of wall.
(Note, section 106 money will go to improving recreation facilities in the Narrow Marsh.)

Afterwards, a presentation on outline plans for the development of “Boots Island”, which may well be submitted in six weeks time.

Elsewhere, plans for the former Meadows Police Station and Clifton Miners’ Welfare Club sites are being worked on.
