Tour of Trent Basin Developments

20th September 2018: 8.00am arrival for an 8.30am start to presentations and tours. Finish no later than 11.00am

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. If you want to be added to the reserve list please email or call 07803 126807

Reconnecting the city with the river, the Trent Basin development sits on the north bank of the Trent to the south east of the city. Right at the centre of this development is a historic inland dock – a reminder of the area’s importance when it came to distributing goods across the Midlands that would arrive down the river by boat.

The development is a waterside neighbourhood of low energy, contemporary homes and apartments. Phase 1 is complete with phase 2 well underway.

It plays a major role in the Nottingham Waterside regeneration project – a development that stretches out over 250 acres of land, making it one of the biggest of its kind in Europe.

We will meet at the Nottingham Racecourse where there will be a brief presentation about the development. We will then move to the Trent Basin site by coach where you will be given a guided tour of the Waterfront, The Basin and access to the Apartment block before being taken back to the racecourse by coach.

This event has limited capacity so it is for members only (no guests). Bookings are limited to a maximum of 2 places per company. Bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
