The application was first submitted in 2021 but then withdrawn due to concerns relating to the impact on the independent living block Palmer Court and other neighbouring residents.

The plans have now been resubmitted with revisions relating to the extension and the outdoor seating area.

Planning officers recommend that the application is approved despite objections from residents.

A petition by residents at the Palmer Court independent living complex, signed by 42 people, said the plans would cause disturbance to neighbours.

Nottingham City Homes objected to the development, which they said would have “a detrimental impact on residents’ ability to peacefully enjoy their homes”.

Residents in Lenton also said the proposal would encourage anti-social behaviour and the “further studentification in an area that already struggles with ASB [anti-social-behaviour] issues”.
