Property investment opportunities in Nottingham


Wednesday 14th September 2011

New home developers and property investors will be shown around some of Nottingham's key sites next week showcasing the emerging city development and investment landscape.

Nottingham's new development chief David Bishop says the city will impress investors and housebuilders when they visit this month and consider investment opportunities.

Mr Bishop, the city council's corporate director of development, will be leading tours around the city on 19 September, and he believes property investors will be wowed with a city that is set to invest £1.6bn over the next few years - with more expected.

"Not many other cities can demonstrate such investment momentum, The Hub Railway Station Improvement, Tram Phase Two, Broadmarsh and Victoria Centre transformation, new university buildings ... the list goes on. I would expect that many of our visitors will want to get on board with such a progressive city," he said.

Organisers of the Invest in Nottingham Day on 19 September say they intend to lure investment to the city by showcasing what it has to offer at this major event starting at Trent Bridge.

Global economist and Vice Chancellor of the University of Nottingham David Greenaway and Jon Collins, leader of the city council, will be speaking at the event, which follows on from a successful Invest in Nottingham Day held in London at the new St Pancras International Hotel in June.

The Invest in Nottingham Day will provide opportunities for city leaders, influential businesses and developers to explain the city's opportunities to potential investors.

Paul Southby, chair of the Invest in Nottingham Club, said: "Following on from contacts made from our successful London event, we will be showing investors the city's biggest, most promising development areas and introducing them to local decision-makers and business leaders. We aim to persuade investors that Nottingham is not only a great place to do business, but is also great location to bring your staff and base your business.

"We currently have 19 major enquiries about what we can offer developers in the city and we working hard to convert these enquiries into reality," Southby said.
