The Nottingham Urban Area is an area of land defined by the Office for National Statistics, consisting of the city of Nottingham and the adjoining urban areas of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, in the East Midlands of England. It had a total population of 666,358 at the time of the 2001 census, and is currently estimated at 675,600.
The Nottingham Urban Area is bounded to the west by a narrow gap between Breaston and Borrowash. In the 1991 census, Ilkeston was considered outside of the Nottingham Urban Area. Clifton is within the current city boundaries, but is considered separately for ONS purposes.
Greater Nottingham is largely within the three districts of Rushcliffe, Broxtowe and Gedling surrounding the city, though the area spills into the Nottinghamshire district of Ashfield, and also to the Amber Valley and Erewash districts of Derbyshire. The Nottingham Urban Area is, by the ONS' figures, the 7th largest in England, with a size between that of the Liverpool Urban Area and Sheffield Urban Area.

Greater Nottingham Partnership
The local authorities collaborate in some ways. The Greater Nottingham Partnership considers Greater Nottingham to consist of the City of Nottingham plus the entirety of the Rushcliffe, Broxtowe and Gedling boroughs, along with Hucknall from Ashfield, but no part of Derbyshire, as no Derbyshire council is a member of the Partnership.
Nottingham-Derby metropolitan area
The conurbation forms a large part of the Nottingham-Derby metropolitan area, which has an estimated population of 1.5 million. The Urban Areas of both Derby and Nottingham are almost continuous with Draycott (part of the Breaston Urban sub-division) being almost continuous with Borrowash part of the Derby Urban Area. The Mansfield Urban Area also forms part of this metropolitan area. This Urban Area is not nearly continuous with the Nottingham Urban Area. However, it is almost continuous with the Alfreton Urban Area, which had a population of 41,289 according to the last census, with the South Normanton/Pinxton Urban sub-division of the Alfreton Urban Area being almost continuous with the Sutton-in-Ashfield Urban sub-division of the Mansfield Urban Area. The Alfreton Urban Area is also nearly continuous with Ripley part of the Nottingham Urban Area.
