Nottingham University, who recently completed the purchase of Lenton Lodge, the former gatehouse to Wollaton Hall,  have submitted a planning application for redevelopment of the site of 522 Derby Road (formerly occupied by Mansells).

Bond Bryan have been chosen as the architects for the project, an Advanced Manufacturing Building which will include offices, teaching space, laboratories, and workshops. The plans also include the provision of a new  scout hut on the site.
