Plans to redevelop land underneath the tramline at Nottingham Station have moved one step closer.

Pictures of what the site could look like once it has been transformed have now been released.

The arches, in Trent Street, next to the taxi rank, are set to be developed into shops and restaurants.

Nottingham City Council hopes the site could attract independent or pop-up businesses.

When the plan was announced in July, 2019, commuters welcomed the "smart" and "refreshing" plans to redevelop the land.

Business leaders in the city also welcomed the move.

Nottingham City Council leader, councillor David Mellen, said: “Turning these arches into shops or food and drink outlets is another exciting development in the wider transformation of the city’s southside.

"It’s going to become an increasingly busy part of the city, with more students, train and tram passengers, residents and office workers all as potential customers for any new business.

"Over the road at Loxley House we will also soon have a new entrance and customer service point bringing extra footfall to Trent Street.

“We’re planning to invite developers to bid for the work to enclose the structures soon and already have arrangements in place with the neighbouring developers to provide the service connections and concrete floors.

"We’re hopeful we will get some interest from independent or pop-up businesses to take up the units."
