One of the main routes into Nottingham city centre is set to receive a £700,000 facelift after securing Heritage Lottery Funding.

Carrington Street, which links Nottingham Station and the Broadmarsh Centre, will have some of its historic buildings repaired and refurbished.

The project is in addition to the £67m station plan and the recent £150m deal to improve the Broadmarsh Centre.

Plans are being finalised but work should begin in 2015.

Councillor Jane Urquhart, from Nottingham City Council, said: "Carrington Street boasts many high quality buildings from the turn of the century.

"The street has already seen significant redevelopment and we hope this heritage-led regeneration approach will not only further improve the fabric of the buildings but also...make the street a more attractive destination."
