The redevelopment of the Broadgate area and The Square shopping precinct, including a new 24/7 gym and retail units have both been recently completed and the town is also one of the UK's leading areas in terms of public transport modernisation with the recent Phase 2 of NET's tram network including a brand new bus and tram interchange in the town centre.
Alongside the retail presence, Beeston is also home to many important professional service providers with marketing and financial companies, solicitors, property agents and alike populating the Broadgate and redeveloped Mill area on Wollaton Road.
Beeston also has many popular points of interest including the Beekeeper statue and the popular green space at Broadgate Park.
Redevelopment in Beeston
The Council is currently working with external consultants to continue the redevelopment of Beeston Town Centre.
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."

In September 2009, Beeston was officially declared a Fairtrade Town following a campaign from local residents and organisations. Fairtrade Status highlights the local support for the idea of Fairtrade and is awarded to a town actively encouraging people to choose Fairtrade goods.
