A £100 million project in Nottingham to include a new conference centre and hotel development has moved a step closer.


Nottingham City Council has chosen developer Miller Birch as its preferred bidder to acquire the city’s Guildhall site, which includes the Guildhall as well as its central fire and police stations.


As part of the proposal for the site, reported to be worth £100m, Miller Birch has included plans to extend and refurbish The Guildhall as a four-star hotel and build a new 38,000 sqm mixed use development including offices and a conference centre. 


Nottingham City Council already owns the Guildhall building, which it vacated six years ago to move into new offices, while an agreement has been made to purchase the police and fire stations once they have relocated.


City Council deputy leader, Councillor Graham Chapman said: “This is a key city centre site we’ve long had ambitions for and I’m pleased we’re now in a position to see the whole site developed.”


Mark Bielby, development director of Miller Birch added: “We are delighted to be working alongside Nottingham City Council in the delivery of what will be one of the largest developments ever seen in Nottingham and will contribute significantly to the economic prosperity of the city.”
