A brief history of Trent Basin

The planning and production of Trent Basin has been a long time coming, with plans to build a new neighbourhood on the waterside in talks since before the turn of the century.

With the multi-award winning first phase of homes at Trent Basin now complete, we take a look at the history of Trent Basin to date.

The construction of Trent Lane Depot completed

Back in 1927, when Col Rayner, an engineer and director of the Trent Navigation Company, told the corporation that a riverside cargo depot was needed in order to obtain more trade, the site at Trent Lane began life as a busy trading station. The depot took five years to complete and, by 1933, the two iconic warehouses were complete.


Trent Lane Depot closed for business

River trade on the Trent fell in the 1970s and freight reaching the Trent Lane Depot declined from more than a million tonnes in the 1960s to just over 300,000 tonnes by the early 1980s. Because of this slowdown in trade, British Waterways closed the site down in the early 1980s.


Blueprint commences work on plans for the Waterside

Blueprint put together a team of internationally recognised urban designers and architects and started work on a concept for the Trent Basin site. This was just the beginning of Blueprint’s love affair with this waterside jewel.


The Vision is set

By applying Blueprint’s Footprint Policy principles to Nottingham Waterside, Blueprint and a team of industry and academic experts came up with a vision statement for this new neighbourhood to help guide the development proposals.


Planning permission is granted

After working closely with Nottingham City Council and leading urban designers and architects, Blueprint received planning permission for the first phase of development at Trent Basin.
