Romorantin Place

to be given a

facelift

The decommissioned block of 29 bedsits is no

longer considered appropriate for sheltered

accommodation and has been boarded up for

many years. The bedsits are to be remodeled

into 16 new two-storey family homes.

Feedback from local people has been positive.

“Far better than I thought it would be,”

said

one resident after seeing the artist’s impression

of the finished project.

“I think it’s fabulous,”

said another.

This is the third regeneration project that emh

group has undertaken in Erewash. The first

two – Hart Lea and Town Street in Sandiacre –

were the first new affordable homes to be built

in the borough for over 10 years.

Work has already begun on transforming the

disused water fountain at Romorantin Place into a

thriving community garden with a time capsulate

and sculpture, thanks to Long Eaton Civic Society

and a £12,000 grant from Tesco.

“This has been a difficult project to

get off the ground, but we are

delighted that we are finally going

to be giving the buildings a much

needed overhaul.”

Adrian Cheetham

Director of Property Services

Following a successful public

consultation, we are pushing ahead

with our plans to regenerate Romorantin

Place in Long Eaton. Work is expected

to start in the summer and be completed

a year later.

The occupied 19 flats and 22 maisonettes are to

be refurbished and fitted with new kitchens and

bathrooms. The front of the building is also to be

given a facelift.
