Ada Lovelace House



Project Update -

  • 11 jobs created (at end Quarter 3, 2018/19).
  • Estimated jobs created over lifetime of project - 9 jobs.

New, high-quality office space is now available to entrepreneurs and businesses in Nottinghamshire – thanks to a £287,000 investment by Ashfield District Council and the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

Formerly Ashfield Urban Council Offices, and more recently a police station, the building on Urban Road in the North Nottinghamshire town, is a well-known local landmark, named after Lord Byron’s daughter and mathematician Ada Lovelace. The redevelopment of Ada Lovelace House has created 1,658 sq. ft. of space for start-up businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), after extensive renovation works by local construction company, Robert Woodhead Ltd.

The project was funded with more than £140,000 from Ashfield District Council and £143,000 from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund allocation – used to fund infrastructure projects, which attract investment and create jobs across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire – as part of D2N2’s mission to create 55,000 new jobs in ten years (2013-2023). D2N2 money for the Ada Lovelace House redevelopment was agreed by the D2N2 Infrastructure and Investment Board.

Ada Lovelace House offers seven high-quality offices with shared communal space and open-plan meeting areas. An official opening of the building tok place in October 2017, on 'Ada Lovelace Day'.
