A petrol station and garage in Beeston could be demolished to make way for dozens of new flats. It comes after plans were unveiled for a new four-storey apartment block on the site of the Beeston Car Center in Broadgate.

The latest plans have been submitted by an applicant referred to as Mr Hall, whose first name was not included in the planning application submitted to Broxtowe Council.

It forms the latest in a series of new housing projects in the city, with separate developments having gone through the planning process to provide private student accommodation.

Although the application for the Beeston Car Center does not specify who the apartments would be for, people in the city spoke of the scale of the new development in general. Caretaker Anita Lamb, 54, said: “There’s a lot of building going on in Beeston at the moment.

“It seems a bit excessive. I don’t think building apartments or student housing should be placed in all available sites.” In the latest plans, 32 studios could be built if the application is approved.

“Our proposal seeks to build a purpose-built four-storey apartment block to occupy the site taking into account existing neighboring properties, together with recent planning permission granted close to the site,” a planning statement read.
