Bring back a lido

We the undersigned petition the council to Develop the Broadmarsh shopping centre site into a a lido and outdoor community space.

The collapse of intu provides Nottingham an opportunity to reconsider the development of the Broadmarsh site. Historically, there were lidos across Nottingham and it would be fantastic to have one brought back to the area. The location is also well-served by public transport.

Council response

Thank you for your ideas on the Broadmarsh and for taking the time to submit your petition to Nottingham City Council on 27 July 2020.
The Council recognises that Broadmarsh is an extremely important site right at the heart of the city centre and how vital it is that we maximise its potential as part of the wider regeneration taking place in the city, bringing investment, creating jobs and improving the quality of life for local people.

The withdrawal of Intu from the site presented a further financial challenge for the Council at a time when budgets are under immense pressure and any future redevelopment of the site is not possible without the Council working in partnership with developers and investors. However, the situation has provided a great opportunity to look again at the plans for this key site taking into account different ideas and please be assured that your ideas will be included and considered as part of that process.

The Councils priority right now remains on maintaining the health and safety of the site and reopening the public right of way between Collin Street and Listergate as soon as possible.

As soon as the Council are in a position to have a wider conversation about the plans for this site, we will contact you again at that time via the email address with which you have contacted us.
