Plans to demolish an existing library in Nottingham to make way for a new mixed-use development have been approved.
Hockley Developments Ltd sought the go-ahead to demolish the Sherwood Library on Spondon Street to make way for a replacement building and a number of residential properties.
The Sherwood Library building houses three retail units on the ground floor, most recently a police contact point, a beauty clinic and a charity shop, and the library entrance. The library itself occupies the whole of the first floor. To the east of the library is a former day nursery site.
Planning permission was sought for a replacement of the library building with a new, three storey building comprising a retail unit and the library entrance on the ground floor, a new public library on the first floor and seven one-bed flats on the second floor.
