Radford wedding shop to be repaired after being destroyed by car crash

Plans have been put forward to repair a wedding dress shop that was destroyed by a car ramming into it. Police were called to Dream Wedding Dress on Derby Road, Radford shortly after 2pm on December 27, and workers had to be called in to prop up the building after the crash.

the store’s owner, Kathryn Parsons, had previously told Nottinghamshire Live of the ‘devastating’ moment she discovered a car had crashed into her building. But now there are plans to reinstate the building to its former state.

A planning document stated the building had “suffered severe impact damage”, meaning the shop and residential apartment upstairs had to be vacated. The new plans would see the building repaired and rebuilt on a like-for-like basis, if approved by Nottingham City Council.

The existing damaged windows and doors would be replaced like for like or with similar windows and doors. The first-floor balcony at the front of the building, looking onto Derby Road, will be replaced using a timber flat roof structure with LED flashing detailing, while the timber shop façade will be returned to how it looked before the crash.

At the time of the crash, traffic lights were also hit at the junction where Derby Road, Ilkeston Road and Alfreton Road meet. Nottinghamshire Police confirmed afterwards no-one had been arrested or injured as a result of the crash.

Just after the crash, a spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police said: “It appears to have been one vehicle involved in the building. Structural engineers are on site and the vehicle is being recovered.” The planned repair works are currently pending consideration by Nottingham City Council.
