    A major shake-up of council-owned buildings around Nottinghamshire has been approved, including the creation of a new "iconic" office building next to the River Trent.

    The Home Brewery building, in Arnold, would be sold as part of the plans, after being branded "unfit for purpose", the authority said.

    The scheme, put forward by the Conservative-run Nottinghamshire County Council, also involves a new building at Top Wighay Farm, near Hucknall, to house the multi-agency safeguarding hub (MASH) which looks into complex social care cases.

    County Hall

    Staff could be moved from Trent Bridge House, which towers over the cricket ground, and into a yet-to-be-built "campus" building next to County Hall, pictured.

    In a debate on the issue, Labour councillors said they supported the plan in principle, but there was not enough detail for them to support it. Concerns were also raised the project could run over budget.

    So far, £2.4m has been set aside, but the building costs are not yet known because the designs have not yet been drawn up. There are also no exact time frames yet.
