Redevelopment in Beeston

The redevelopment of The Square shopping precinct which includes a new 24/7 gym and remodeled retail units, was completed in mid 2015. Beeston is also one of the UK's leading areas in terms of public transport modernisation, with the Phase 2 of NET's tram network featuring a new bus and tram interchange in the town centre.

The Council is currently working with external consultants to continue the redevelopment of Beeston Town Centre - Phase 2.

Beeston Square Phase 2

A consultation with residents on what businesses they would like to see on the site of the former fire station, bus station and multi-storey car park has been completed. The resulting vision, approved by members from all political parties, is for a cinema-based evening economy.

"These are exciting times for Beeston and we will continue to work with the local community to ensure that the town can continue to grow into an ever better town centre, including redevelopment with a focus on the evening economy.

The Council is committed to helping to support and work with our local businesses to make Beeston a great place for people to live, work, shop and invest."
