Urban Room concept spreads to Nottingham
POSTED 11 Oct 2018 . BY Andy Knaggs
Nottingham has become the latest city to open an 'Urban Room' - the concept first introduced in 2014’s Farrell Review, which called for spaces "where the people can go to understand, debate and get involved in the past, present and future of where they live, work and play".

Situated at 38 Carrington Street, close to the Broadmarsh regeneration area, the venue will be the setting for discussion and networking at exhibitions, fun activities and training programmes, providing a space for the public to engage with new developments, projects and schemes. A virtual Urban Room will also be created, containing information on the Heritage Lottery-funded Townscape Heritage Scheme for the Carrington Street area.

Partners from Nottingham City Council, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Society of Architects, and both universities in Nottingham, have come together to bring the Urban Room to fruition.

Carrington Street in central Nottingham was laid out in 1828 and has had a number of notable buildings upon it over the years, including hotels, banks and the former Redmayne & Todd sportswear shop (running from 28 to 48). Grant funding from the Townscape Heritage Scheme was used to restore the space and frontage of number 38 to its "former historic glory".
