The 'largest healthcare facility of its kind in the country' has opened at the University of Nottingham following a £9m donation.

The Cripps Health Centre, based at the University Park campus, serves students, staff and the local community.

Having opened its doors in September, it offers health and dental care and features minor operations suites, physiotherapy areas, treatment rooms and a pharmacy.

House of Fraser in Victoria Centre is to close in 2019 as Intu couldn't reach agreement with Sports Direct (HoF's owners) over a new deal.

A shame for the city this, and obviously awful news for everyone who works there.

In better news though, HMRC will be opening a regional hub in the new Unity Square office complex (near the train station) in 2021, with 4k employees to be based there.

An ambitious scheme to allow tram and bus users to pay with contactless cards, smart watches, Apple Pay, and PayPal is now set to be fully operational in April 2020.

It is thought Nottingham will be one of the first cities outside London to offer the service, which is hoped to boost the local economy and make using public transport easier.

The Labour-run Nottingham City Council is masterminding the project, and has committed £500,000 towards it, while the Department for Transport is paying £3.2 million towards the scheme.

It had been hoped the scheme would be operational by the end of this year, but after a decision approved today (Tuesday, November 20), it will be operational in early 2020.

A group of investors have abandoned their £2.85 billion takeover bid for shopping centre giant intu, owner of Nottingham's Victoria and Broadmarsh centres.

The consortium, led by intu deputy chairman John Whittaker's Peel Group, blamed market volatility and "macroeconomic conditions" for its decision to pull out of the deal.

Nottingham reacted with pride when West Bridgford dad blogger LadBaby managed to land the Christmas number one.

We Built This City... on sausage rolls - a parody version of the 1985 Starship classic - went straight to the top of the UK official chart on Friday night - beating both Ariana Grande and Ava Max.

The track, featuring Mark Hoyle alongside his wife Roxanne and two children, Phoenix Forest and Kobe Notts, is the first novelty song to become Christmas number one since Bob The Builder's Can We Fix It? in 2000.

It is also the first Christmas number one to be released by a Nottingham native.

While London has seen a slump in house prices, year on year, Nottingham home owners have seen the price of their homes rising twice as fast as the national average.

The news, which is based on the latest data released by HM Land Registry, will clearly create a different reaction depending upon whether or not you are a home owner.

If you are looking to get on to the property ladder then you probably won't enjoy the news that the average property price in our city stood at £144,416 in October, this is according to data released by HM Land Registry. That is up 5.6 per cent compared to £136,771 in October 2017 - an increase of £7,645.

Nottinghamshire has also seen a rapid rise in house prices, year-on-year. Across the county the average was £178,641 in October 2018. That is up by £8,803, or 5.2 per cent, from £169,838 in October 2017.

The long-awaited redevelopment of Nottingham's dated intu Broadmarsh Centre will finally begin in the next few weeks, it has been confirmed.

New glass frontage, a cinema, bowling alley, restaurants and high street retailers will be among the new additions to the venue when work on the £86 million project is completed in 2021.

The centre owner, intu, has now confirmed Sir Robert McAlpine as the contractor for the project, part of the broader £250m Broadmarsh regeneration scheme, and anticipates workers being on site "within the next few weeks".

Martin Breeden, intu development director, told Nottinghamshire Live: "This is the heart of a major regeneration project and it is one of the biggest regeneration projects in any city in the UK in the 2020s.

Should look great when it's all finished along with the redevelopment of Carrington Street and Canal Street.

Yes, all for the better I suppose, but I miss all the old places, I always used to Park on "Midland Magnetos" front when going into the City, close to Broadmarsh, or one of the roads around there, no chance now.
I don`t like paying to park the Car!

It looks like it is finally going ahead. 

Looking forward to seeing it all finished, it will be a great improvement on what it was before.

Bugger! As I am plotting my move back to Nottingham from down South, I was hoping (rather selfishly) that Nottm/Notts prices would stay the same....or go down a bit.
