Planning permission has finally been granted for a development on the site of the former Aerborn factory at 198 Sneinton Dale. 

Building work is now underway with diggers removing the rubble from the basement of the demolished factory building. This will clear the way for a development of 7 shops at street level with 2 storeys of flats above. 

Work was abandoned after a couple of days! Finally restarting in February 2014. Read more...

There will be parking for 14 cars and delivery vehicles at the rear- which can be used by people visiting the shops. Cars and deliveries will enter from Hardstaff Road and exit on to Sneinton Dale.

The 1930s former Dale Cinema building was demolished in November 2010 and the site has stood empty as the development has gone through a number of design changes. To achieve planning permission the size has been reduced from 9 shops and flats in the original application, and the materials are now conventional red brick with yellow brick coursing and stone window sills and heads.
