​Students were a part of a consultation meeting for ‘Broadmarsh - The Big Conversation’ with councillor Sally Longford to inform Nottingham Council about the students views on the development of the site of the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre.

The meet­ing includ­ed rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Stu­dent Coun­cil, Stu­dents Union, Green Soci­ety, and stu­dents under­tak­ing the My world, My home” project — an exter­nal sus­tain­abil­i­ty project. Han­nah from Friends of the Earth, who sup­ports our stu­dents on the My World, My Home” project was also in atten­dance. Cllr Long­ford was excit­ed to meet the stu­dents as she used to be a Geog­ra­phy teacher at the College’s High Pave­ment Sixth Form.

Cllr Long­ford intro­duced the Big Con­ver­sa­tion’ to the stu­dents, explain­ing that the rede­vel­op­ment of the Broad­marsh cen­tre has been rad­i­cal­ly changed with the INTU group own­ers going into admin­is­tra­tion. The pass­ing over own­er­ship of the site from INTU to the City Coun­cil has brought a once-in-a-gen­er­a­tion oppor­tu­ni­ty to shape the devel­op­ment of the site.

The stu­dents brought for­ward some strong ideas and were keen to see the coun­cil devel­op some vibrant and colour­ful spaces which would attract peo­ple to the city cen­tre, with a focus on social spaces, cre­ativ­i­ty and to cre­ate an inter­na­tion­al appeal.

It needs to stand out. We need to high­light the best of Not­ting­ham through the Broad­marsh devel­op­ment, using local artists and local peo­ple to high­light Nottingham’s culture
