Nottingham City Council's Executive Board will today decide whether or not to contribute £50 million towards the redevelopment of the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre.
Last week the council revealed plans for new shops, restaurants, cinemas and improved transport links including a new tram stop.
Two years ago, the council was in the final stages of plans for the transformation of the shopping centre before it was sold to Intu, the owners of the Victoria Centre.

The board will also examine plans for a £14 million bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund ahead of the proposed regeneration of Nottingham Castle as well as £2.23 million in funding for the redevelopment of Sneinton Market.
Nottingham City Council says it faces a further £55m of cuts in the next two years ahead of its announcement of its 2014/15 budget.
The council says it has already had to make up more than £100m in funding cuts from the Government in the last three years.
