Case study: Radford Mill

The old Victorian mill site had stood derelict for years. Pelham’s architect team worked with Nottingham Community Housing Association to tender for the site from Nottingham City Council. Their designs for four storey flats and a mix of house types was the successful bid.

The scheme reflects the Victorian industrial look of the old mill and maintains the original traditional perimeter.

The scheme has proven to be a catalyst for regeneration in this part of the city. Kick starting investment in neighbouring properties and reinvigorating the neighbourhood with opportunities for new and existing local facilities.

Allan Fisher, Director of Development and Assets, NCHA:

"This project is a successful example of a housing need that is being addressed through the partnership of two established housing developers: NCHA and Nottingham City Council. With 89 new homes being created, on a site that was just growing more and more derelict, it’s great to think that so many people will benefit from this development of high quality new homes."
