Bulldozers move in ready for £100m regeneration scheme
DEMOLITION work has started on city centre buildings, which are making way for a £100 million regeneration project.
Regeneration specialist Compendium Living, the company behind the Castleward scheme, has started preparation work for the development – and one of its first acts has been to demolish unoccupied buildings in Traffic Street.
Neil Walker, project manager at Compendium, said: "Demolition of the former Nationwide building and car wash has now been completed and work to clear the area is under way.
"All the waste materials will be stored on site, recycled and reused where appropriate on the new development.

"This is the first stage in the initial works and we anticipate that construction on the first phase of Castleward will begin soon."
Castleward is a massive project, covering an area the size of 16 football pitches.
It is likely to take 15 to 20 years to complete.
The site will eventually include about 800 homes, new schools, shops, offices and a boulevard lined by trees leading from Derby train station to the Westfield centre.
The boulevard will contain shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as community facilities such as nurseries and health centres. The first buildings to be ready will be commercial units.
