The Strelley Road Complex stands as a vibrant and inclusive cornerstone within a socially deprived area in Nottingham.

Developed to integrate seamlessly into the surrounding environment, this facility enables residents and the local community to achieve their full potential through independent living & educational advancement. The scheme will provide sustainable benefits in the community for years to come and forms a vital part of the wider council rejuvenation programme within the area.

Strelley Road Library:

Located on the ground floor, the Strelley Road Library provides contemporary library resources and study space, in addition there is an information desk for Council and housing services and an interview/ meeting room for Nottingham City Homes. The library provides the community with improved computer access and equipment; including free Wi-Fi and a dedicated under fives children’s area, the centre piece being a unique ‘story tree’.

Strelley Road Court:

The new Independent Living Scheme accommodates apartments for persons over the age of 55 or disabled, specifically designed to provide independence within a secure environment. A communal tenant room is provided along with communal parking and gardens for tenants. All apartments were completed to the highest standard, whilst accommodating the varying needs and abilities of the residents.
