A carefully designed new development of homes, facilities and two new squares that will embrace the industrial heritage and residential character of Chilwell and Beeston.
The plans have been developed through close engagement with the local community and will not only create an important anchor for the west end of the vibrant Chilwell High Road, but be a substantial new mixed use quarter for Nottingham.
Barton Quarter is located on the former site of Bartons Transport, which is not only the oldest bus company in the world, but has been an important institution in Nottinghamshire dating back to 1908. A fourth generation family business, Bartons was founded by Thomas Henry Barton OBE and grew to be, for many years, the largest independent operator in the country until 1989 when it was sold following a change in government policies. The Barton family want to keep running entertainment activities on the site when it is developed and see this new chapter in the site’s history as an important part of the family legacy.
The scheme has been designed by the Prince’s Foundation, the Prince of Wales’s prestigious built environment charity, in close collaboration with Ben Pentreath Architects. Ben is a well known designer who has collaborated with the Foundation on many projects and shares the ethos of traditional design combined with contemporary living standards.
Planning permission granted and construction to start in early 2018.
